Police probing Honeymoon Bay Halloween night thefts

Lake Cowichan RCMP are investigating two Halloween night incidents in Honeymoon Bay.

Sometime during the night of Oct. 31 a Honda Civic was taken from a residence. The car was located by police a short time later parked nearby on a logging road.

There was no apparent damage to the car, but several of the owner’s personal items were taken from the vehicle.

Also on Oct. 31 an unknown person stole approximately three-quarters of a cord of firewood that had been piled in front of a home. Const. Grant Desmet of the Lake Cowichan RCMP said it is unknown if the two incidents are related.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the detachment at 250-749-6668 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
