Police are investigating after an Esquimalt resident came across someone that appeared to be in the process of breaking and entering into their home Wednesday morning.
Just after 1 a.m., Esquimalt division officers were called to the 1200-block of Colville Road for a report of a prowler.
The resident reported an air conditioner was moved out of their window and flashlight shone into the home as they walked into a room.
VicPD says the suspect fled and officers flooded the area.
A VicPD K9 team tracked a potential suspect through a neighbourhood in the direction of Lockley Street and officers discovered a number of sheds and backyards in the area had been accessed.
The suspect was not located.
Anyone with home surveillance video of witnesses to this incident are asked to call Victoria Police at 250-995-7654
