Dec 17 2011

Police have urged residents in Saanich to be vigilant following a string of incidents along Gorge Road West, between Harriet and Tillicum roads.

On Dec. 8, items were stolen from a vehicle in an underground parking lot at an apartment building.

Overnight on Dec. 9, a rooftop skylight at an apartment building was tampered with. "There was fairly significant damage done to the skylight," said Saanich police spokesman Sgt. Dean Jantzen.

Also on Dec., 9, a property manager told Saanich police that three buildings had damaged call panels at their main doors in what appeared to be attempts to break-in. At one of those apartments, on Dec. 11, lacrosse equipment worth thousands of dollars and other items were stolen from a locker.

"All of these incidents are basically within one to two blocks of each other," Jantzen said. "Residents in the area . . . are asked to keep a watch for people acting suspiciously.
