Victoria, BC – Investigators are asking for your help in identifying two persons of interest after a woman’s Fernwood residence was broken into, her car stolen and her credit card used for fraudulent purchases.

Between the hours of 3:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. on November 25th an unknown person entered the victim’s home through an unlocked front door. This person then stole items from the home including a wallet and car keys. The victim’s car, which was parked out front of her home was also taken. The vehicle has since been recovered.

The investigation revealed that the victim’s credit card was used for a purchase at a gas station in the 1900-block of Oak Bay Avenue at 7:30 a.m. on November 26th. Surveillance footage shows two persons of interest in the investigation who used the credit card at two different locations.

The first person of interest is described as a short Caucasian man with a heavy build, approximately 55 years-old. This man was wearing a dark brown fur hat with earflaps, sunglasses and had a dark brown moustache. He was wearing a dark green overcoat.

The second person of interest is described as a tall, slim Caucasian man with long brown hair held in a ponytail, and a medium-length beard. This man was wearing a multi-coloured thick bomber-style coat and a greenish grey hat with a pattern, similar to camouflage on it.
