Saanich police are on the hunt for two men who stole several TVs and high-end vacuum cleaners early Saturday morning.

Around 5:45 a.m., two suspects gained entry by breaking a glass front door at the Sears Home Centre on Tolmie Avenue, just north of Mayfair Mall.

The men stole several 55″ Panasonic TVs and Dyson Vacuum cleaners, said Saanich police Const. Maksym Vartanov.

The suspects escaped in a silver Ford Ranger before police arrived.

One of the men is described as Caucasian with a medium build and height and short, light brown hair.

He was wearing a black baseball hat, black jacket, black pants, white running shoes with an insignia on the side and black gloves at the time of the theft.

Anyone with relevant information is asked to call Saanich police at 250-475-4321 or report anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
