Two teens were arrested Sunday night after ravaging the inside of a bottle depot business on Quadra Street.

Saanich police were alerted around 9 p.m. by a citizen who could hear the sound of glass smashing inside the depot, just south of McKenzie Avenue.

Patrol officers, along with a police canine unit, were deployed, and two juveniles were found hiding in a storage container.

Damage inside the building was extensive, and included a broken door and windows, broken bathroom fixtures, and the discharge of two fire extinguishers.

The teens, a male and female, face charges of break and enter, and mischief.
