OAK BAY POLICE: Unlocked vehicle makes it easy for thieves

Vehicles involved located in north and south Oak Bay

The owners of two vehicles – one of which was locked, the other unlocked – were liberated of some of their belongings last week.

Early Sunday morning, police were alerted about a theft-from-vehicle in progress in the 3300-block of Woodburn Ave. A witness saw a man said to be in his early 20s running toward Henderson Road. A pickaxe, likely used to smash the driver’s side front window, was found next to the car. A briefcase and an iPad worth about $2,000 were stolen. The suspect was not found.

On Feb. 2, a Dell computer worth about $1,000 and a pair of women’s sunglasses were taken from an unlocked car parked in the 2000-block of Crescent Rd.
