Oak Bay police see possible connection in daytime B&Es

Laptop was stolen in two of the three daylight break-ins

Police are seeking a suspect who was spotted by homeowners during an afternoon break and enter in south Oak Bay.

Just after 2:15 p.m. on May 28, Oak Bay police responded to the in-progress burglary in the 2100-block of Sutherland Rd. The owner reported seeing a man run out of the yard, heading eastbound towards Victoria Avenue. The suspect is described by police as a white male in his late teens or early 20s, wearing a black toque, black fleece jacket, black skate boarder-style shorts, black running shoes and carrying a black backpack.

A laptop computer was stolen from the home. At approximately the same time two days later, police responded to break-in call in the 1200-block of Hewlett Pl. that they believe to be related. The burglar took prescription medications, an extension cord and a personalized gold letter opener.

A third break-and-enter was called in to police May 30 when a man living in the 2200-block of Oak Bay Ave. reported that someone entered his apartment and took his laptop while he was sleeping.
