Pricey bike lifted from UVic
A $600-bicycle was stolen near the Medical Sciences Building at the University of Victoria on Nov. 26.
The suspect cut the cable, which was missing from the scene where the 2011 Blue Norco Indi Hybrid bicycle was stolen. The Oak Bay Police department has attended several bicycle theft incidents from the Oak Bay Recreation Centre and UVic over the past several weeks. Police suggest owners purchase quality locks and lock their bicycles in a well-lit pedestrian friendly area.
Drunken visitor doesn’t get far
At approximately 5 a.m. on Nov. 28, Oak Bay police received a report of an intoxicated male who entered a residence in the 2700-block of Cadboro Bay Rd.

The driver’s prohibition is now extended until Feb. 26.

Speed, driving conditions, bad match
A woman sustained minor injuries and received a fine following a dramatic driving incident Sunday night (Dec. 2).
She was travelling southbound past the Oak Bay Marina in the 1200-block of Beach Dr. when she lost control of her vehicle on the S-turn, entered the oncoming northbound lane and spun into a 180 degree turn.
The vehicle then struck a retaining wall and came to a stop on a raised garden bed.
The woman was issued a $167-fine for driving contrary to the wet road conditions.
