After officers responded to an alarm at the BC Liquor Store at 1087 McKenzie Ave., the surrounding area was cordoned off. Zeke, a police dog, immediately picked up the trail of the suspects and led police directly to a group of four young men who had been stopped by a nearby officer. All four were arrested. Police soon discovered that a second liquor store, in Saanich Centre at Quadra St. and MacKenzie Ave., had also been broken into.

A 15-year-old Victoria resident and a 16-year-old Langford resident, have been charged with break and enter and are awaiting a court date.
