Arrest made in case of break-ins at UVic

January 21, 2022
Police have arrested a 38-year-old man who is believed to be responsible for a string of break-ins at the University of Victoria. Police say that 11 break-ins have been reported since June, nine of which occurred within the last month and a half, resulting in the theft of items such as generators, electronics, and tools. On January 12th, an alarm was triggered at the UVic bookstore and campus security encountered a man leaving the bookstore. The man fled after a brief conversation with security, and was later found using evidence from the break-in and information gathered during previous investigations. “We would like to thank UVic campus security and all of their officers for their cooperation and assistance, which was crucial to this investigation,” said Saanich Constable Markus Anastasiades.
