Arrest warranted on Avenue

The male was arrested on the strength of the warrant and held in custody for a tele-bail hearing and subsequently remanded for the weekend.

Oak Bay police attended a glass break alarm at a business complex in the 2000 block of Cadboro Bay Rd. on March 7. Officers noted that the front glass door to one of the businesses was damaged, however no entry was gained. A dog track did not yield results. The unknown suspect used a rock to smash the glass.

Swiped licence plates found

A resident found two licence plates at the Cedar Hill Golf Course on March 7. They were handed over to police who discovered they were reported stolen from Saanich. The Saanich Police Department was notified and the plates were forwarded to ICBC.

Jurisdictional cooperation on assault

The Saanich Police Department called on Oak Bay On March 9 when a male involved in an assault in Saanich fled his residence heading towards Willows Beach. Members from the Oak Bay Police Department located the male in his vehicle and he was arrested for assault and handed over to the Saanich Police Department.

Stop sign rear-end crash

Following too closely at a stop sign proved a problem for a driver March 10.

Oak Bay police were called to a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Cedar Hill Cross Road and Cadboro Bay Road where two vehicles were at a stop sign waiting for traffic to open on Cadboro Bay Road. The first vehicle rolled forward and suddenly stopped, the vehicle directly behind rear-ended the first vehicle causing significant damage. The driver was issued a violation ticket for following too closely.
