Knives, coffee-makers nabbed from Tillicum Home Outfitters

This morning (Dec. 12) at approximately 5:25 a.m., officers responded to an intrusion alarm set off at Home Outfitters in Tillicum Mall.

Thieves entered through the front door to Tillicum Mall’s Home Outfitters early Friday morning (Dec. 12), taking a pair of high-end coffee makers and thousands of dollars worth of Henkel knives.

The commercial break and enter is similar to thefts from earlier in the week, said Saanich Police’s Sgt. Steve Eassie.

“While we are still in the early stages of this investigation, it would certainly appear to have a number of similarities to two previous incidents from this week.”

On Dec. 6 some vacuums and TVs were taken from Sears Home Centre on Tolmie Avenue followed by a Dec. 8 theft of $10,000 worth of video game consoles Shoppers Drug Mart in Gorge Plaza.

Home Outfitters is still determining a list of all of the items missing. The store has a monitored alarm system that registered the alarm to the store at 5:05 a.m. in the morning and Saanich Police were notified at about 5:25 a.m.

Investigators are comparing information and video surveillance from all three incidents to determine whether they are in fact related.

Anyone with information relating to this incident, or any crime, are asked to contact the Saanich Police Department at 250-475-4321, or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS (8477).
