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.
