August 22, 2017 - Thieves Arrested in Oak Bay

August 22, 2017

On August 22nd, at approximately 3:40 am, the Oak Bay Police responded to a call of a suspicious person near Kings Road.

OBPD members located two suspicious males on bicycles in the area.  The males, aged 27 and 29, were arrested and searched and a great deal of stolen property was located.  Heroin drug paraphernalia was also located.  The stolen property was primarily smaller electronic items such as lap tops.  Anyone missing property from their vehicle should contact the police.

The males also had property on them which indicates they had also recently broken into vehicles in Langford.  The West Shore RCMP are assisting in that aspect of the investigation.

The males have been released from custody but charges of Possession of Stolen Property and Breach of Probation are being recommended to Crown. 

The public is reminded to lock their vehicle doors as most, if not all, of the stolen property appears to have been taken from unlocked vehicles.
