A resident in the 200 block Crease ave reported his truck stolen for the first time overnight on Friday, May 25th. The truck is described as a gray 2004 Mazda B220 pick-up, bearing license 2915JX. The owner left his keys for the vehicle and his house in a jacket which was in the truck itself.
On May 26th, the owner’s sister spotted the truck in the Westshore on Whitehead place. It was towed to Saanich and was examined by forensics officers. Of course, when it was returned the keys were found to be missing.
At about 10:30pm last night, the truck owner called once again. He was awoken by two males laughing and his truck start up and being stolen once again.
This time, the owner had locked a bike in the front of the truck and had a battery charger connected. The bike had been unceremoniously thrown on the ground and then run over by the truck!
Later in the evening the truck was spotted by police on Interurban. It was followed out to the Trans-Canada Highway and into the Westhore area. The stolen truck then took off and officers refused to engage in a pursuit.
The truck is still outstanding and police are seeking its whereabouts. The owner has been advised to have the truck re-keyed.
