Five businesses were broken into in two nights this week in both the Gorge Road and Shelbourne corridor areas of Saanich.

Two businesses were entered in the Gorge Road area on Wednesday night and then three more along the Shelbourne corridor of Saanich on Thursday night.

In all, the person(s) responsible gained access to the businesses by breaking the glass on the front of the entry of the stores, said Saanich acting Sgt. Jereme Leslie.

The areas targeted inside the stores have been areas that would normally contain cash.

Business owners are encouraged to not leave any cash on site and taking extra steps to ensure anyone would know that no cash is left on the premise.

Saanich Police are also asking for people to contact them if they see anything suspicious.
