Visible valuables tempt thieves

Keep valuables out of sight in vehicles, yards, police warn

A series of break-ins to parking garages and vehicles parked outside residences last week has officers reminding Oak Bay residents to keep all their valuables from view.

“(People) can help prevent thefts by ensuring that no items, especially valuables of any kind, be left unsecured or in plain sight in yards, sheds, garages or vehicles that would be a temptation to anyone,” said Deputy Chief Kent Thom.
