North Delta crime beat, week of Dec. 14

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:

• Dec. 15, 9:04 p.m., 6500-block Sunwood Dr.: Complainant reported that for the past couple weeks he has seen a vehicle parked legally outside on the street in front of his home. Complainant initially reported the vehicle to be suspicious, but later admitted that he was just annoyed that the driver decided to park in front of his home. Police explained that parking in front of his home was legal as there was no posted sign directing otherwise. Police advised the complainant that if he did not have any sufficient reasons to report this vehicle for being suspicious, then he should call bylaw for further assistance on parking-related matters.

• Dec. 15, 9:17 p.m., 6400-block 120th St.: Police were conducting proactive patrols when attention was drawn to a vehicle that turned without a signal and had slow driving behavior. Police conducted a traffic stop, where the driver admitted to consuming alcohol, and therefore an approved screening device demand was read. The driver attempted 10 times to provide a sample, with police providing demonstrations on how to use the device. The driver was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition ticket for refusal to provide a breathe sample. The vehicle was towed and the driver left on foot.

• Dec. 16, 2:28 p.m., 6000-block Sunwood Dr.: Complainant reported a suspicious male ringing their doorbell and running away from their house. Police located the male, who was handing out flyers and had mistakenly rung their doorbell. Police notified the homeowners of the mistake.

• Dec. 16, 4:30 p.m., 8000-block 120th St.: Complainant attended a nearby grocery store and lost his black leather wallet that contained various ID cards. The complainant first noticed his wallet was missing when he observed three unauthorized transactions completed on his debit card. Police informed the complainant to report his cards as missing/stolen to their respective institutions and discussed preventative fraud protection measures.

• Dec. 16, 6:49 p.m., 7000-block 115th St.: Complainant called police regarding some people that had been canvassing door to door for a charity. The complainant was concerned this was a scam of some sort and wanted police to check. Police had dealt with the charity earlier in the day in the same fashion and had done multiple checks to ensure their legitimacy. The charity was confirmed to be doing related solicitation. Police advised the complainant that the charity was not a scam.

• Dec. 17, 4:47 p.m., 11000-block 84B Ave.: Complainant reported she received a call asking for her social insurance number for a seniors’ bus pass application she had submitted. Police assisted and looked over documents provided by the complainant. It appears that the call was genuine as the complainants’ bus application documents were not completely filled out. Police advised the female to not provide her social insurance number over the phone in future for her own protection.

• Dec. 17, 8:30 p.m., Highway 99: Complainant reported that they were heading northbound on Highway 99 approaching Highway 91, where they witnessed a blue laser being shone at vehicles from the Panorama Ridge area. Police patrolled the area, however were unable to locate the laser.

• Dec. 18, 1:04 p.m., 8000-block 120th St.: Complainant at a nearby grocery store called police to report that an elderly female was in possession of merchandise that she did not pay for. The female was confronted and was co-operative with staff. Police attended and confirmed that the female had purchased a few items and had hid them in her purse. All items were recovered and police informed the female she was no longer allowed to attend the grocery store.
