Shortly before 4:00 am this morning the Sooke RCMP responded to a report of a vehicle that had driven through the front door of Tim Hortons and Petro Canada, located at 6080 Sooke Road.
Sooke RCMP Frontline members attended immediately and found a truck that had crashed through the front of the building and was unoccupied inside.
It is believed that the suspects were trying to gain access to the ATM machine located inside the business.
With the help of the RCMP Police Dog Services and Westshore RCMP members, a male suspect was located and arrested a short distance away hiding in the bushes.
Police believe that there is still one male suspect outstanding and are requesting anyone with information related to the person or persons responsible for the break and enter, to please call the Sooke RCMP at 250-642-5241 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
