Oak Bay police briefs

Bike thefts increasing

Oak Bay police are urging residents to ensure bicycles are locked when not in use and serial numbers are recorded, after a series of bike thefts.

On Oct. 9 a bicycle was stolen from the Heron Street area and on  Oct. 14 another was taken from the rear of a vehicle in the Woodburn Avenue area. A third bike was taken from inside a unlocked garage on Dorset Road.

Hit and run crash a mystery

A vehicle parked in at Wilmot Place and Oak Bay Avenue was involved a hit and run collision that resulted in approximately $1,000 in damage on Oct. 10.

The suspect vehicle is unknown and police are urging anyone who witnessed the accident to call Oak Bay police with information.

False alarms unnecessary

Oak Bay police responded to seven false alarms last week. As a result, police are encouraging home owners to make certain that their alarms are properly set and that family members know the appropriate shut off codes.
