Victoria BC – Officers are astounded after a man showed up intoxicated to report a theft after driving to our station.

On August 11th at 7:00 a.m. a man attended our station to report the theft of his passport and cell phone.  During the conversation with the man, our officer noticed signs of impairment and was shocked to learn that the man had driven himself to the police station.

The man was served a 24-hour prohibition and his vehicle was impounded.

Unfortunately, impaired driving is still an issue in our community. VicPD removed 46 drivers, impaired by either alcohol or drugs, from our roads in July of 2018.  

According to ICBC, impairment remains one of the top contributing factors for fatal car crashes. On average, 65 British Columbians die every year in crashes involving impaired driving. 1
