Saanich Police are investigating another overnight commercial break and enter that follows two other similar thefts earlier in the week.

This morning at approximately 5:25 a.m., officers responded to a report of a commercial intrusion alarm at the Home Outfitters store located at Tillicum Mall in the 3100 block of Tillicum Road.

Upon arrival at the store, the front glass doors to the store were noted to have been broken allowing entry to the store.

"While we are still in the early stages of this investigation, it would certainly appear to have a number of similarities to two previous incidents from earlier this week" Sgt. Steve Eassie said.
