Eight new break-and-enters in Shelbourne corridor

Saanich Police are warning residents along the Shelbourne corridor after eight break-and-enters were reported over the weekend.

Saanich Police are warning residents along the Shelbourne corridor to secure their homes and keep valuables out of sight after eight break-and-enters were reported over the weekend.

The University Heights area has been a hotbed for break-ins, with a series of B&Es dating back to Nov. 25. The latest rash of incidents indicate the suspects have been targeting sliding patio doors to gain entry to various residences.

“All of the break-ins have occurred on lower ground floor, apartment-style or townhouse dwellings,” said acting Sgt. Jereme Leslie.

In some of the recent incidents, police noted the suspects gained access to homes because the sliding door locks were faulty, or because the lock was easy to undo.

“We’d like to encourage everyone to make sure that their patio doors are secure, that they’re locking them when they’re leaving their home and just to take a look and make sure their locking mechanism is working,” said Leslie.

Anyone with information about the latest break-ins is asked to call Saanich Police at 250-475-4321 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
