Saanich hit with rash of break and enters

Saanich police are warning residents about the importance of locking windows and doors, even when you're home, following a series of brazen daytime break and enters.

The first incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 7 in the 5600-block of the Pat Bay Highway near Elk Lake.  A 29-year-old female taking a nap and awoke to the sound of someone in her suite. An unknown male fled when she exited her bedroom.

The second incident occurred on Nov. 12 between 1 and 4 p.m. at a home in the 4600-block of West Saanich Rd. A resident returned home to find video games and loose change missing.

The third incident also happened mid-afternoon on Nov. 12 at a home in the 4500-block of Chatterton Way. A resident returned home to find a gaming console and a garment bag were taken.

"While it is not known if there incidents are related, there are striking similarities in each of the cases," said Sgt. Steve Eassie.

Police are asking anyone with information on any of the break and enters to call 250-475-4321.
