Police seeking suspects behind crashed stolen car

A number of residents in the 2700-block of Foul Bay Rd. were awoken early Saturday morning by the sound of a car crashing through a hedge

A number of residents in the 2700-block of Foul Bay Rd. were awoken early Saturday morning by the sound of a car crashing through a hedge and coming to a stop against a tree.

Saanich police were called to the scene, but all occupants inside the 2000 Ford Focus had fled by the time police arrived. Witnesses reported seeing anywhere between two and five individuals, believed to be youths, running from the scene.

Sgt. Steve Eassie says it’s still unknown what caused the vehicle to veer out of control, but investigators are still looking into it. He says they’re also examining the vehicle to recover any forensic information about the occupants.

Officers quickly learned the vehicle had been stolen from a home in the 1900-block of Haultain St., two blocks away, just prior to the crash.

Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to call 250-475-4321 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
