A man who jumped off a BC Ferry is under arrest, accused of breaking into a home on Galiano Island.
Just after 10:00 Wednesday night, authorities started searching for a man who jumped off the Coastal Celebration ferry, travelling through Active Pass.
He deployed a life raft before leaping out into the frigid waters.
It seems he made it to land, because a frantic call came in from a woman on Galiano, saying a man—with no clothing on and soaking wet—had entered her home.
On top of that, police say he was incoherent and not responding to her screams to get out.
Then he started smashing furniture.
He was eventually arrested at some nearby cabins.
No one was hurt.
He’ll face a string of charges.
