A 22-year-old Langford man was held prisoner in the car he was trying to steal in Victoria Monday night.
The owner interrupted the theft after being woken by the commotion outside of the 100-block Bushby Street home at 4 a.m. on June 13.
The husband of the owner went out and kept the man locked in the car until the Victoria police arrived.
Officers arrived within minutes and found the would-be thief still inside the car.
He was arrested and charged with one count of breach of probation. The Langford man is well known to police.
