Weekly Media Release Sept. 8 – Sept. 15, 2019

Oak Bay Police responded to 102 calls for service.

On September 8th, the Oak Bay Police Department received several complaints regarding a large party in the area of Foul Bay Road and Carnarvon Road. Police attended and learned from the resident that they had been trying to shut down the party and requested police assistance. Police remained on scene until the party was shut down and the party goers had left in cabs without further incident.

On September 11th, the Oak Bay Police received a complaint of a suspicious male in the area of Foul Bay and Fort St. The Complainant reported that they had been approached by a male who claimed that he was investigating a report about her “smoking all day outside the building”. The male proceeded to pull out a large black folder and showed them a picture of a police-type crest. The Complainant left the scene without speaking with the male any further. The Complainant believed the male was attempting to scam them. The male was described as Caucasian, approximately 25 years old, over 6 ft. tall with a slim build, trim and neat red hair (no facial hair), wearing black pants and a black jacket.

On September 13th, an Oak Bay Police officer was on patrol driving eastbound on Oak Bay Ave. The officer observed a vehicle drifting in its lane while travelling under the posted speed limit.  The vehicle was stopped and during the investigation it was determined that the driver had been consuming alcohol. The driver was issued a 90-Day Driving Prohibition and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

On September 15th, Police responded to a “Mischief in Progress” in the 1400 Block of Newport Ave. The Complainant reported an unknown person had thrown a rock through a window. Police located a male within the building who was not a resident. The male was taken into custody as he possessed break-in tools, bear spray, and drugs. Police are recommending several charges including Break and Enter, Possession of Break-in Instruments and Breach of Probation. This incident is still under investigation.

Vandalism is once again becoming an issue in Oak Bay. Police are reminding the community to report any act of vandalism in progress by calling 911. File a report with police if you are a victim of graffiti. Once police have attended and a report has been filed, remove the graffiti from the targeted area as quickly as possible.
