An SUV stolen from the West Shore was found early this morning (July 17) in the ocean off Cattle Point in Oak Bay, according to Oak Bay Police.
A call to police came in around 1:30 a.m., reporting that the SUV was submerged 90 feet from shore and about 10 – 20 feet down.
“By disposing of the stolen vehicle this way, this thief placed people’s lives in danger as these types of operations aren’t without risk,” said Deputy Chief Ray Bernoties.
C-Tow attended and was able to remove the vehicle and it was subsequently towed to the yard.
It was confirmed to be a stolen vehicle from West Shore.
The file is still under investigation.
