Lifetime of memories stolen with camera

The Oak Bay Police investigated a number of thefts from vehicles in the South Oak Bay area today (June 11). A number of items were stolen from a variety of cars in a two block radius, but one theft was significant in monetary, as well as sentimental, value.

A Nikon D70s digital SLR with a Nikkor telephoto lens, several memory cards and a USB cord, all contained in a black camera bag were stolen.

The camera itself, along with the memory cards, contain several hundred photos the owner has collected over time, many of which were to be used in a Ph.D. thesis.

"The value of the camera and equipment is considerable, but it’s the hard work and importance of the info contained in the memory cards that are irreplaceable," said Community Liaison Officer Const. Rick Anthony.

If you have any information regarding these items, please call the Oak Bay Police at 250-592-2424 and quote file #14-1999, or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
