Oak Bay Thief Gets $15,000 in Goods

Approximately $15,000 worth of merchandise was stolen from Oak Bay businesses before the suspect fled the scene.

The Oak Bay Police Department was asked to take a commercial break and enter the room early on November 13th. A male suspect broke the rear window and climbed into the store, police said in a release. K9 troops were present, and after a short truck to a nearby parking lot, police determined it was likely the suspect had fled by car.

That file is under investigation.

In total, Oak Bay Police responded to 79 calls between November 13th and 21st.

On November 19, officers identified a woman, believed to be a female suspect, involved in the November 3 attack on Hall Road. In that incident, an elderly man was pushed down the front steps after a woman demanded entry into his home.

A 23-year-old woman has been charged with assault and is due to appear in court early next year.

Other calls for assistance were made to the BC Emergency Medical Services and Oak Bay Fire Department crews on the morning of November 19th. A 23-year-old man was found unconscious at a bus stop near Bay Road and Fort Street. Paramedics attended, gave him Narkan and provided medical care. He was taken to hospital for observation.

On November 17, officers observed the driver stop and begin speeding. When police stopped the man, he smelled alcohol on his breath. The 35-year-old driver was given a “warning,” a three-day license suspension, and for speeding and other traffic violations he was fined $350 and had his vehicle impounded.

Oak Bay Police are asking residents to take pictures and keep receipts and serial numbers of valuables after multiple people have attempted to claim the bikes.

On Nov. 13, a resident found the bike on the front lawn and posted photos on social media to find its rightful owner. The bike was worth about $7,500. Police said several fraudulent claims of ownership were made against residents and police. The rightful owner was eventually found with proof of purchase.
