Oak Bay police are asking residents to keep their eyes open for strangers in their neighbourhoods, after three homes were targeted by thieves Friday – two in broad daylight.
A resident reported that someone tried to pry open the back door to their home and garden shed in the 2400-block of Heron St.
Also during daylight hours, a would-be thief was interrupted breaking into the rear of a home in the 2000-block of Carnarvon St. A man was seen riding a bicycle away from the scene, according to investigators.
That night, the front door to a home in the 700-block of Transit Rd. was forced open and the residence entered.
There was no word on whether anything was stolen from any of the homes.
