Saanich Police are investigating a series of break-and-enters at Mount Tolmie Hospital.

In a statement released Monday, the police department stated that there have been multiple break-ins at the hospital since the beginning of this month over August long weekend.

Officers believe the suspects returned to the unoccupied hospital last week and again this past weekend and broke in during the night.

Police say they allegedly caused damage to the building and stole tools and electronics.

The Mount Tolmie Long-Term Care facility was permanently closed and does not house patients. Additional security measures have been recommended to secure the building.

According to the statement, police believe it is “very unusual” for a building to be the target of repeated property crimes.

The Saanich PD Forensic Identification Section through the Detective Division is assisting in this investigation.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Saanich Police Department or report anonymously through the Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
