Bike thefts continue at Oak Bay High

Three more locked bicycles swiped from Cadboro Bay Road school

Oak Bay Police Department is investigating a series of bike thefts at Oak Bay High.

“It’s great to have so many kids biking to school so this is very disappointing,” said Ray Bernoties, deputy chief of Oak Bay Police Department. “Often a series of property crimes like this are committed by a single person or pair of criminals. Once caught, the crime stops.”

Most recently, on Oct. 10, they received reports of two locked bicycles stolen from Oak Bay High. These include a blue Ghost men’s mountain bike, and a black men’s Davinci 12 speed mountain bike with new grips on the handlebars. A third bike was reported stolen from Oak Bay High on Oct. 12. It is described as a black ladies Raleigh road bike with a single red stripe along one bar.

Recent weeks have seen a number of locked bikes taken from the school area.

“We’re patrolling the area more and asking for the public to advise us of anything suspicious,” Bernoties said. “We’re working closely with Oak Bay High on this issue.

Oak Bay police ask anyone with information to contact them at 250-592-2424.
