An off-duty RCMP officer got pinned after stopping two women during a break and enter on Merlin Road in Langford, yesterday (Dec. 15) just after 6 a.m.

The garage door of a show home had been left open and the two women, both 34, tried to park inside it. There was not enough room to park so they began loading items from the garage into the vehicle.

When an off duty RCMP officer identified himself the women jumped in the vehicle and tried to flee, somehow pinning the officer to the wall with the vehicle. He was able to climb out onto the hood of the vehicle, get hold of the keys and arrest the women.

The officer was not injured but the home suffered extensive damage.

Both women will return to court in January.
