More than $8,000 in eyewear stolen from Oak Bay store: police

Police are keeping an eye out for the thief or thieves who stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from an optical store in Oak Bay late last month.

On Nov. 30 at 3:59 p.m., officers were dispatched to an optical business in the 2000-block of Cadboro Bay Road following a commercial alarm and, when arriving on scene, found a smashed-out window.

Approximately 40 pairs of eyewear frames were stolen from the store, with the estimated value of theft believed to be more than $8,000, according to police in a release.

While RCMP’s police dog service attempted to find the suspect or suspects responsible, no one was located, Oak Bay Police say. Forensic investigators from Saanich Police also examined the scene. 

Anyone with information regarding the theft is asked to call Oak Bay Police at 250-592-2424 or Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
