Other calls this week for Oak Bay Police include a report of theft of liquor with the subject being apprehended quickly, charges are pending.

A string of recent car break-ins have left Oak Bay Police reminding residents to hide any items of value out of sight as locking the car isn’t always enough to deter thieves.

Another vehicle was forcefully entered while parked at the tennis bubble behind the Oak Bay Rec Centre on March 7 between 8 and 9 a.m., thieves smashed the passenger side window and made off with a large amount of cash, a computer and other items.

Police extinguished a wood fire at Willows Beach on Saturday evening, who said the fire was contrary to Oak Bay bylaws which prohibit fires on ‘foreshore or beach within boundaries of the District of Oak Bay.’

Receiving reports of a drone being launched from the maintenance yard of the Victoria Golf Course, police were unable to locate the operator. Current rules for piloting drones state a drone must stay below 90 meters above the ground and at least 30 meters away from vehicles, vessels and the public.
