Grinch prowling parking lots

Oak Bay Police are again reminding residents to lock their cars and take in valuables after a number of thefts from automobiles in various areas of Oak Bay last week.

The majority of thefts are from unlocked vehicles. Also, with the Christmas season upon us, police recommend not leaving gifts and packages visible in a vehicle while you shop. Thieves target vehicles for valuables especially around this time of year.
