A man attempting to break into a Colwood home while wielding a stick was arrested by West Shore RCMP on Monday afternoon.
Officers responded to the homeowner’s call at 1 p.m. and went to her residence near the 2200-block of Marlene Road where they saw one of her neighbours chasing the suspect away.
Officers were told that the suspect had destroyed nearly $300 worth of the neighbour’s holiday decorations with his stick.
The 53-year-old suspect appeared to be under the influence of narcotics and was arrested for break and enter and mischief. He will appear in court.
