Oak Bay Rec patrons warned about security after theft from pool deck

Brazen thief swipes jacket with wallet, cell phone, as man rests in hot tub

A theft last week at the Oak Bay Recreation Centre has police reminding users of the facility to take appropriate measures to safeguard their possessions.

On Thursday (Feb. 16) a nylon jacket containing a man’s wallet and cellphone was taken from the pool deck near the hot tub area. The jacket’s owner was using the hot tub at the time.

Police remind rec centre users that the facility is a busy place and a haven for opportunistic thieves. Valuables should always be secured in one of the lockers provided.
