North Delta crime beat, week of April 12

A selection of property crimes submitted weekly by the Delta Police Department

The purpose of the crime beat is to educate and inform the public about some of the property crime trends occurring in North Delta and other files of interest. It is submitted weekly by the Delta Police Department. If you see anything occurring that you believe to be suspicious, call 911 for in progress crimes and emergencies or 604-946-4411 for other assistance.

The following are some of the calls police responded to in the previous week:

• April 12, 7:19 a.m., 9000-block 120th St.: Police were conducting routine patrols when a vehicle was observed with inoperative brake lights. A traffic stop was conducted and police found the vehicle to have had no insurance since July 2020. The driver was issued a violation ticket for not having insurance. The registered owner attended the scene and had the vehicle towed privately to his residence.

• April 13, 1:52 p.m., 8000-block Wiltshire Blvd.: An anonymous caller reported a large dog running loose at a nearby intersection. Police attended and located one collar-less pit bull running erratically around the intersection, and a tan-coloured mastiff breed tied to a sign post with a piece of string. The one dog was wearing a collar with the name “Max” on it, but no information was on the tag regarding the owner. Both dogs were friendly, and the loose pit bull was captured easily. Bylaws attended and took custody of both dogs due to not seeing a possible owner nearby.

• April 14, 1:02 a.m., 11900-block 96th Ave.: Police conducted a roadblock due to checking for sobriety of a driver who was displaying indication of liquor consumption. An approved screening device demand was read, and the driver provided two samples, both resulting in a “fail.” The driver was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition as well as a 30-day vehicle impoundment.

• April 14, 7:00 a.m., 8400-block Nordel Way: Police observed a vehicle approaching with an increasing speed of 111 km/h in a 60km/h zone. Police conducted a traffic stop where the driver was issued an excessive speeding ticket and had their vehicle towed.

• April 14, 12:45 p.m., 11000-block 84th Ave.: Complainant attended the North Delta Public Safety Building to report that they have been the subject of identity fraud. They received a call from an Ontario number with a male pretending to be an employee of a phone company giving out a great cellphone plan. The complainant provided their personal identification details and soon realized it was a fraudulent call. The complainant then tried to call the number back, which resulted in no answer. The phone company advised that they have had no accounts opened in their name. Police advised the complainant to contact their credit agencies and have an alert placed on their identity.

• April 16, 5:00 p.m., 8000-block Delvista Dr.: Complainant called reporting their concern for the safety of two young kids driving a dune buggy in the area and being supervised by their father. Upon police arrival, the buggy was already back in the driveway. Police advised the father of the safety issues and the father stated the kids won’t be driving in the neighbourhood.
