Two inflatable boats were reported stolen from Oak Bay Marina on the same day, with one later recovered.
The first report on Sept. 16 was for the theft of a rigid-hulled inflatable and motor, with Oak Bay police passing the details along to the RCMP Pacific Shiprider Program.
A 41-year-old man was arrested in Cadboro Bay with the items.
Also recovered was the motor from an inflatable dinghy reported missing the same day. The owner told police he had an outboard motor on another boat he owns stolen from the same dock.
