Jewel thieves strike

Two incidents in one day in the same area arouse suspicion

NANOOSE BAY — Oceanside residents are being warned to lock their doors and otherwise secure their homes while they are at work after a pair of similar daytime break and enters.

RCMP Sergeant Brian Robertson said the two incidents took place on Tuesday, Sept. 20 in Nanoose Bay. Police received a complaint from a resident in the 2300 block of Weeks Road about culprits prying open the front door of the residence and, once inside, making off with a quantity of jewelry.

The theft, Robertson noted, took place some time between 9:30 a.m. when the owner left for work and 3:25 p.m. Police later received a second call, this time from a residence in the 2900 block of Wild Rose Boulevard.

This one was somewhat different, as the culprit just walked in through an unlocked back door. As with the first incident however, a quantity of jewelry was stolen by the thief or thieves.

This theft also occurred during daylight hours, some time between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

“People are encouraged not only to ensure their doors and windows are locked and secured but to keep an eye out for your neighbour as well,” Robertson said.
