North Delta crime beat, week of Aug. 29

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:

• Aug. 23, 1000-block Cliveden Ave.: A business reported the theft of two catalytic converters from vehicles in the parking lot. Complainant is not sure when the theft occurred and reported the incident for police records.

• Aug. 23, 10900-block Santa Monica Dr.: Complainant reported the theft of the catalytic converter from their Honda CR-V parked in front of their residence. A canvass of the neighbourhood proved negative.

• Aug. 24, 11800-block 81A Ave.: Complainant reported that they had provided their credit card and banking information to an unknown suspect via phone after being advised their accounts were hacked. Subsequently the complainant found $1,000 had been charged to their credit card through the Western Union Bank located in India. The complainant cancelled their bank cards and disputed the charges with the bank, which requires a police file number in order to continue investigating the incident.

• Aug. 24, 1600-block Derwent Way: A business reported the theft, sometime overnight, of a catalytic converter from their vehicle parked in front of the business in an open access lot. Value of converter is $1,500. No other damage to the vehicle. No witnesses or suspects.

• Aug. 24, North Delta Public Safety Building, 11375 84th Ave.: Complainant reported they had provided their password to a suspect who claimed to be a Microsoft rep. The complainant realized they were a victim of fraud when they found $310 had been taken from their bank account. The bank was informed of the fraud and as a result the bank account was changed. Police advised the complainant to change all of their account and computer passwords.

• Aug. 26, 11900-block 88th Ave.: Police stopped a suspect who was riding a new green bike without wearing a helmet and pushing an older bike. The suspect admitted to stealing the newer bicycle from a bike rack by cutting the lock. The suspect was arrested and chartered for theft, then released on a promise to appear in court at a future date. The bike was returned to the owner.

• Aug. 26, 8000-block 120th St.: A business reported they had observed a male collect several items including blankets, pillows and sheets, before leaving the store without payment. The complainant confronted the suspect and all items were recovered before they fled the scene. Police attended the area and conducted area patrols, which proved negative. Images of the suspect were obtained from video surveillance and will be disseminated for possible identification.

• Aug. 27, 7600-block 119A St.: The building manager reported a break-and-enter to the mail room within the apartment building’s lobby. A suspect entered the building through the front door, which requires a fob, and then pried the mail room door open with a tool. Complainant was unsure if any mail was taken. Police were advised that video surveillance will be provided. Anti-break-in measures were discussed with the complainant.
