Esquimalt suspect caught on surveillance in Victoria break-in

Police are searching for an Esquimalt man caught on surveillance video during a break-in Monday night in James Bay.

Chase Thomas Hufnagle is described as five-foot-10, Caucasian with a slim to medium build, green eyes and light brown hair that is short on the sides and long on the top. Victoria police are pursuing him as a suspect in relation to the break-and-enter in the 300-block of Quebec Street and say he may be on the Lower Mainland.

“Hufnagle was caught on surveillance breaking and entering in the business with an accomplice and stealing items from the business. It’s quite clearly him,” said VicPD spokesperson Bowen Osoko, who did not confirm the location of the incident.

Hufnagle is well known to police and was previously on court-ordered conditions to keep the peace and be on good behaviour.

Police urge anyone with information about his whereabouts to call police at 250-995-7654, or 911 if you see him. To report anonymously, call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
