The Beach Grove area of South Delta has once again become a target for thefts from auto. The DPD would like to remind residents to remove all valuables from their vehicles (including purses, wallets, laptops, backpacks and garage door openers) and to call 911 if you see someone suspicious in your neighbourhood.
Also last week, DPD officers took seven impaired drivers off the road, serving three 90-day immediate roadside prohibitions (IRPs), three three-day warnings and one 24-hour warning.
The week prior, Delta police served seven IRPs: five 90-day prohibitions, one three-day warning and one 24-hour prohibition.
If you suspect someone is driving while impaired, please call 911.
