Oak Bay Police released a photo on Monday of alleged “person of interest” spotted at a University of Victoria bus stop.
In the photo, a man is standing next to a bus stop on Ring Road about 150 metres from the Student Union Building. It’s believed his description matches that of someone sought in connection to two separate break-and-enters at UVic with computers being stolen.
We'd very much like to talk to this "person of interest" regarding a couple B&Es that have occurred this year at UVic. #yyj #OakBay @uvic @BCTransit If you know who he is, please call us. (Please don't tweet suspect names) Thx. pic.twitter.com/6r82a4XtYA
