OAK BAY POLICE: Electronics, laundry machines targeted in break-ins

Two residential break-ins resulted in a handful of personal electronics being taken by thieves.

Last Monday (Feb. 7), a suspect entered the unlocked rear door of a home in the 1000-block of Foul Bay Rd. some time during the day and stole a black Apple iPod, Macbook Pro laptop and a Blackberry tablet.

And on Friday, the basement door of a home in the 1700-block of Foul Bay Rd. was forced open and an Acer laptop was stolen. Some bedroom drawers were also rifled through, but nothing else was stolen.

The Saanich Police Forensic Identification Service was called in and they were able to lift a footprint made by the suspect.

Also last Monday, the laundry room of an apartment complex in the 2200-block of Cranmore Rd. was entered and a suspect tried to get into some of the machines’ coin boxes. Two machines were damaged, but nothing was taken.
