Craigflower bridge site hit with vandalism

Saanich police dogs tracked down two young men early Sunday morning

Saanich police dogs tracked down two young men early Sunday morning after glass windows were broken on an excavator and a portable building at the Craigflower Bridge construction site.

An area resident called police around 2 a.m. after hearing loud male voices and the sound of glass shattering.

Saanich police officers set up a containment and a canine unit located a 14-year-old Esquimalt teen on the View Royal side of the bridge. Two other men in the area fled.

A Victoria police canine unit located an 18-year-old Esquimalt man nearby.

Saanich police Sgt. Steve Eassie says investigators are looking to lay charges of mischief against the 18-year-old and a 21-year-old, who has yet to be located. The 14-year-old was released without being charged.
