Oak Bay Police are looking for a woman suspected of stealing donation boxes and tip jars from local businesses.
The police department said a woman “helped herself” to at least one donation box and one tip jar from at least two busy stores on Oak Bay Avenue Monday afternoon around 5 p.m. She is described as being around 40 years old and standing about five-foot-three.
The Oak Bay Cobs Bread confirmed that store was targeted. A woman came in around 5:30 p.m. and waited until employees were distracted before stealing the business’s donation box, estimated to have about $20 inside.
Police said they will release a higher quality image if one becomes available.
