Thieves take advantage

Nine vehicles broken into last week – because their doors were left unlocked

At least nine thefts from vehicles have occurred in Oak Bay since Thursday Nov. 10.

A majority of the thefts have occurred in the central part of Oak Bay along the 1400-block of Beach Dr.; the 1600- and 1700-blocks of Hampshire Rd.; the 2200-block of Kinross Ave.; Oak Bay Avenue; Eastdowne and Haultain; the 1300-block of St. David St.; and the 2200-block of Brighton Ave.

All of the vehicles were entered overnight while parked either on the road or in driveways. There was no indication of forced entry to any of the vehicles.

Police remind residents to ensure their vehicles are locked when not being used.
