Oak Bay Police are calling on the public to help reel in a man they say stole a betta fish and food from a local pet store.
Last week, police were called to Bosley’s on Oak Bay Avenue for a report of a theft that occurred between 1 p.m. and 1:15 p.m. on Aug. 31.
The business owner told officers that an unidentified man, caught on surveillance video, entered the store before stealing the fish and two food packages worth approximately $70.
According to police, the suspect is described as a Caucasian man between 50 to 60 years old with a distinctive hunched back. He was carrying a black over-the-shoulder messenger bag at the time of the theft.
Oak Bay Police are releasing photos of the suspect in hopes anyone with information will call them at 250-592-2424 or Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
