Regional Crime Unit nabs Victoria man caught on 'trail camera'

Members of the Regional Crime Unit on Friday arrested a man believed to be responsible for an attempted break-in caught on tape.

Saanich police earlier this month credited a pair of homeowners for installing a remote trail camera at their house after a run-in with a stranger on their property, in the 3900-block of Cadboro Bay Rd.

A couple weeks after installing the camera it captured stills of a man attempting to break in to their home.

The RCU arrested 43-year-old Richard Glen Jones around 8:45 a.m. on Friday (April 12) as he left his Gorge Road apartment. He was charged with one count of attempted break and enter.

Officers executed a search warrant on his home and located clothing that matched those the suspect in the photos was wearing. Jones was released on bail and is scheduled to appear in court April 25.
