Sometime between May 5 and 19, a steel tube bike trailer used for Oak Bay municipal promotions was stolen from the bike lockup at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. The trailer is quite identifiable and photos have been circulated through social media. Anyone with information is asked to call Oak Bay Police at 250-592-2424.
Missing man found in Saanich
A missing elderly man was returned home the next day after Oak Bay Police spread the word.
The man in his 80s was reported missing May 25 after he wandered off from home at 10 p.m. the previous day. Saanich Police located him at McKenzie Avenue and Shelbourne Street at 3 a.m. The man was returned home and didn’t require any medical attention.
A cyclist was struck by a vehicle on Foul Bay Road and Fort Street on May 28. The cyclist was southbound on Foul Bay, intended on making a left-hand turn but misjudged the distance of a vehicle approaching from behind, say Oak Bay Police.
The cyclist was hit and knocked to the ground and subsequently taken to Royal Jubilee Hospital by ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries.
Vehicle towed after failed screening
An Oak Bay officer stopped a car for speeding on May 29 and noted the smell of liquor and watery eyes when dealing with the driver, who admitted to consuming liquor.
The driver failed a roadside screening and was issued an immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was towed.
Party impacts parking
The Oak Bay Tea Party runs June 5 to 7 at Willows Park with a parade and airshow limiting movement on land and air. Saturday’s parade will start at 10:30 a.m. from Windsor Park.
There is a marine “no float” zone along the Willows Beach waterfront for the airshow from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday. This is for the safety of boaters while aircraft are flying over the water adjacent to the beach.
