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 the Delta Police responded to in the previous week:

• Aug. 8, 7:32 a.m., 700-block Cliveden Place: Complainant reported his work vehicle, left in the parking lot of a business, was broken into through the passenger-side door, which had a damaged lock. The suspects ripped off the steering column and tampered with the ignition. The vehicle, which no longer starts, suffered about $500 in damage.

• Aug. 8, 9:25 a.m., 8800-block 120th Street: Police found a business unlocked and ascertained a break-and-enter had occurred. Access had been gained through breaking the glass in the front door. The owner at- tended and confirmed the cash register and a laptop computer had been stolen. The cash register was found discarded a short distance away with approximately $600 in cash missing. DPD’s forensic identification services section attended and processed the scene.

• Aug. 8, 8:28 a.m., 11400 90th Avenue: Contractor reported that a residence under construction had been broken into sometime overnight. The suspects entered the residence through a broken ground floor window. DPD’s forensic identification services section attended and processed the scene. Approximately $3800 worth of tools stolen.

• Aug. 13, 2:07 a.m., 8900-block Watson Drive: Complainant reported his work vehicle, which is registered to his employer, was stolen from in front of a residence where the complainant was attending a party. The vehicle was parked on the street and there was no broken glass on the roadside as evidence. The vehicle is described as a black 1995 Nissan Pathfinder with tinted rear windows and a spare tire attached to the roof. Approximately $5000 worth of tools were in the trunk at the time of the theft.

• Aug. 13, 8:12 p.m., 8900-block 118th Street: Complainant reported a suitcase stolen from a vehicle parked in the rear yard. The suitcase contained a Honda motorcycle racing suit valued at $900. The vehicle had been driven before police arrived thus leaving nothing for forensic examination. Area canvass by police proved fruitless.

• Aug. 14, 3:41 p.m., 11400 94A Avenue: Complainant reported her vehicle had been broken into sometime overnight while parked in front of her residence. Police attended and could only find a small scratch on the passenger side door. Nothing had been stolen from the vehicle. The vehicle was not suitable for forensic examination as the complaint had driven the vehicle before police attended.
