Saanich business targetted by metal thieves

More than 225 kilograms of aluminum piping was stolen sometime between the evening of Friday, Feb. 25 and the morning of Monday, Feb. 27.

Another Saanich business has been targeted by metal thieves.

This time, more than 225 kilograms of aluminum piping was stolen sometime between the evening of Friday, Feb. 25 and the morning of Monday, Feb. 27.

A locked and gated compound at the business in the 4200-block of Commerce Circle was entered when the lock was broken.

Police believe the thief or thieves likely used a small vehicle or bicycles towing a trailer, as longer, heavier pipes were left untouched.

A recent surge in copper thefts has kept law enforcement busy all over the region. B.C. Hydro reported in January that an estimated $100,000 worth of their underground copper wire has been taken.

Police are asking anyone with information about the thefts to call 250-475-4321.
