Holiday break-ins continue in Oak Bay

Houses robbed while residents were on holidays

Four break-ins to Oak Bay houses were discovered last week – three while the residents were out of town.

Two were in the Uplands on July 25 and 26 – alarms elicited responses by Oak Bay police. Another in the Uplands occurred between July 22 and 30 and was discovered by the residents when they returned home. Money, laptops and jewelry were taken, but in one case, the family’s BMW was also driven from the garage – likely used to transport the stolen goods to a getaway vehicle. It was found a few blocks away.

A fourth break-in occurred Sunday (July 31) on Beach Drive while the residents were away in the early evening.
