Oak Bay Police NEWS IN BRIEF

Business break and enter may have been aided

On May 7, police responded to a report of a break and enter from a shop in the 2500 block of Estevan Ave. The building had been entered sometime over the weekend and a computer was taken. There were no signs of forced entry to the building, leaving police and the owner to speculate that the business may have inadvertently been left unlocked. There are no suspects.

Police put the brakes on speeder

Shortly after midnight on May 9, a vehicle was seen travelling at 107 km/h on Foul Bay Road. The 2007 Land Rover was stopped and the 26-year-old male driver was charged with excessive speed, fined $368 and had his vehicle impounded for seven days.

Theft from boats increasing

There have been several reports of the theft of downriggers from boats at the Oak Bay Marina and the Royal Victoria Yacht Club.

Users of the marina, the club and surrounding areas are encouraged to report any suspicious activity that they may come across. Members of the Oak Bay police will be partnering with the RCMP Marine Unit to make patrols of the harbours, bays and shorelines to step up enforcement.
