Three facing charges after school break-in

Potential computer thieves caught red-handed at Oak Bay High

A witness’ call to police may have helped catch thieves in the act of hauling stolen merchandise away from Oak Bay High.

The witness phoned Oak Bay police at about 6 p.m. Sunday to report seeing three people carrying items that looked suspicious.

Officers raced to the high school, arriving even before the alarm company called police to report a break-in. There, they saw three individuals running away from the school. One was arrested nearby, while two others were tracked down later that night and arrested.

Police found computer equipment hidden just outside the school.

Two underage boys and one man could be charged with breaking into the school and possession of stolen property.
