Oak Bay Police are hoping the public can help identify a female suspect in an alleged mid-day theft of a package from a home last Thursday.
Oak Bay Police Chief Ray Bernoties posted to Twitter on Tuesday a video from a home security system that shows the suspect walk up to a residence in north Oak Bay, grabs a package and then leaves.
She is seen getting into a waiting white station wagon that was parked nearby.
The incident happened at 12:08 p.m. on Feb. 11 and police were notified Tuesday.
This woman just helps herself to your packages and then flees in the white vehicle in the background. Her sweater & toque are pretty distinctive. If you have any info about who this is, please call us. Not a 'porch pirate'🏴☠️…just a thief. 😡 pic.twitter.com/1bQoMt6UUN
