Oak Bay police seek connection in daytime B&Es

Brazen robberies see two laptops stolen, collection of odd items

Police are on the lookout for a suspect who was spotted by homeowners last week during an afternoon break and enter in south Oak Bay.

Just after 2:15 p.m. May 28, police responded to the in-progress break-in in the 2100-block of Sutherland Rd. The owner reported a man running out of his yard, heading eastbound towards Victoria Avenue.

The suspect is described as white, in his late teens or early 20s, wearing a black toque, black fleece jacket, black skate boarder-style shorts, black running shoes and carrying a black backpack. A laptop computer was stolen.

At the same time in the afternoon May 30, police responded to a break-and-enter call in the 1200-block of Hewlett Pl. that they believe to be related. Nothing as saleable as a laptop was stolen, only prescription medications, an extension cord and a personalized gold letter opener.

A third break-in was reported May 31, by a resident in the 2200-block of Oak Bay Ave. who said someone entered his apartment and took his laptop while he was sleeping.
