The West Shore RCMP are seeking surveillance footage that could help them in their investigation of a break-and-enter at a residence while the residents were asleep.

The incident took place overnight on Monday, July 29th in the 1000-block of Goldstream Avenue in Langford.

The residents of the home woke up in the morning to find their place had been broken into and some personal items were missing.

“A cut screen and an unlocked window appears to be the point of entry for the suspect,” said Cst. Nancy Saggar in a release. “We want to remind residents to lock their doors and windows at night and report suspicious activity right away.”

No description of the suspect was available.

RCMP have canvassed the neighbourhood and are asking anyone who lives in the area and has a video surveillance system to check their cameras for suspicious activity.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
