Business Break and Enter Attempt

Central Saanich Police Service is investigating a break and enter attempt to  a business in Brentwood Bay that occurred this morning. 

At approximately 2:40am  police responded to an alarm at a business in the 7000 block of West Saanich Road.     Upon arrival officers located evidence of a break and enter attempt, however, the break-in was not successful and burglars had not gained access to the business.    Central Saanich Police Service also investigated a similar incident to a business on Keating Cross Road that occurred last month, however, the culprits had entered the business on Keating Cross Road.  

Central Saanich Police Service is reminding the public to report any suspicious activity or suspicious sounds, especially in the early hours when business break- ins are at a greater risk.

After hours suspicious activity in a business district can include slow driving vehicles, sensor lights turning on, people peering into windows or looking out for police (“standing six”). Suspicious sounds can include low, muffled voices or sounds of forced entry (breaking glass,  breaking wood or prying metal).     Please report any audible alarms that you hear.   

If you are a business owner and would like information on how to prevent crime  please contact the Central Saanich Police Service Community Services Section at 250.652.4441
