A postal worker called Saanich police last Friday afternoon after noticing a busted doorframe at a home in the 300-block of Obed Ave.
Police attended and contacted the homeowner. A thief or thieves forced entry into the home through the front door Friday morning, and made off with cash, jewelry and electronics.
Sgt. Steve Eassie says a canine unit was called out after 12:30 p.m., but was unsuccessful in locating a suspect.
Police are asking anyone with information or who may have seen someone suspicious in the area to call 250-475-4321.
