Pair of bikes stolen in Oak Bay

Two cyclists had their rides lifted in afternoon incidents last week

A pair of bike thefts last week have Oak Bay police on the lookout for distinctive cycles.

On May 30, a patron of the Oak Bay Recreation Centre found their Brody mountain bike stolen from the rack just before 3:30 p.m. and the remains of their cut bicycle lock on the ground. Police are reviewing security tapes from the centre.

At 4:15 p.m. on May 28, a man reported his silver Kona bike with purple handlebars stolen from the hallway of his apartment in the 2000-block of Oak Bay Ave.

Anyone believing they may have seen either bike is asked to call the Oak Bay police at 250-592-2424.

 

Thefts from vehicles also a constant

Eleven thefts from vehicle were reported throughout central Oak Bay overnight May 27. A 12th theft was reported to police a couple of days later.
