Shawnigan Lake RCMP say in the past couple of weeks there have been two residential break-ins.

Police say both occurred in July and involved rural residences in the Cobble Hill area situated on side roads off of Telegraph Road.  Neither house had other residences in close proximity.

They add both break-ins occurred during the day while the residents were at work and both houses were locked and had damage done when the culprits forced entry into them.

Police are asking residents to report any suspicious vehicles or occurrences in your neighbourhoods during the day to the Shawnigan Lake RCMP.
