At least one individual is forcibly entering vehicles parked in secure underground lots.

Saanich police say three apartment buildings on Glasgow Street, Tolmie Avenue and Rutledge Place – near the Victoria border – were hit overnight between Jan. 25 and 26.

Sgt. Steve Eassie says 10 vehicles – all locked – had a window smashed out or a door lock forced open.

Portable electronic devices, loose change and cheque books are among the items taken from vehicles. In some instances vehicles were rummaged through, but nothing was taken.

Eassie said investigators have access to video surveillance and are hoping to put out a description of the suspect or suspects in the coming days.
