Several vehicle break-ins were reported in Saanich’s Cordova Bay neighbourhood on Wednesday (May 26) and police are reminding residents to be proactive and prevent auto crime.
According to a Twitter post by the Saanich Police Department on Thursday, six thefts from vehicles occurred the night before in the area surrounding Claremont Secondary School.
Officers are working to identify a suspect and in the meantime, vehicle owners are encouraged to practice the 9 p.m. routine which helps to create a habit of emptying and securing vehicles at the same time every night to deter thieves.
Anyone whose vehicle was broken into – or entered if it was unlocked – can contact the Saanich Police Department non-emergency line at 250-475-4321.
