Two disguised suspects broke into the Oak Bay Rec Centre and stole a number of pre-made sandwiches and alcoholic beverages.
On Tuesday September 20th, Oak Bay Police were called to the recreational centre for a reported incident of breaking and entering.
Staff told police that just after the recreational centre closed, two suspects entered the facility.
Chief Constable Mark Fisher told Victoria Buzz the suspects gained access to the building by climbing a ladder that was left on the premises by a worker then going through a second floor door that was not locked.
The suspects spent most of their time in the Sports View Lounge which is the small restaurant on the second floor where parents can watch their children play sports.
According to police, the suspects collected a number of the lounge’s pre-made sandwiches and alcoholic beverages.
They also damaged some cabinets they pried open but that was the extent of the damages and stolen goods said Chief Constable Fisher.
CCTV was recorded of the suspects gaining entry to the building and their theft.
One of the suspects is described as wearing a black hooded jacket, black pants, black shoes, tattoos on right hand (including fingers) and wore a camouflaged backpack.
The second suspect is described as wearing a black jacket, black pants and during the crime, wore a white clown mask with a black wig.
The investigation is ongoing.
