At least 12 vehicles parked in Gordon Head were broken in to – many damaged to gain access – overnight Friday and early Saturday morning.
Portable electronics and coins were the most commonly targeted items.
Saanich police say the suspect or suspects used a sharp tool to punch in the door locks, however some vehicles appear to have been left unlocked.
“Police ask that people please keep their parked vehicles locked and be sure not to leave any valuables inside,” said Staff Sgt. Scott Treble.
Anyone with information on these break-ins is asked to call 250-475-4321.
