A 16-year-old Duncan male was held in police custody Wednesday after allegedly breaking vehicle windows and stealing vehicle contents along Whistler Street.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokesman Cpl. Kevin Day said the youth was picked up by police at about 10:40 a.m. on Feb. 29.

Day said the male is suspected of attempting to steal items from vehicles as he went along the street, breaking windows of the vehicles with a brick.

"Police attended and located the male with stolen cigarettes on him," Day added.

The youth was held in custody on five separate charges of mischief, Day said, and was expected in court Thursday morning.
