North Delta crime beat, week of Feb. 27

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:

• Feb. 20, 8600-block 120th St.: Complainant reported their backpack stolen from a business. The staff reviewed surveillance video but were unable to locate any information regarding the backpack. The backpack contained an iPhone 10 and several bank cards, which had been used in several locations. All bank cards have been cancelled. Complainant was advised to contact Equifax.

• Feb. 20, 11300-block 84th Ave.: Complainant attempted to renew their Amazon Prime by calling a number, which they assumed was legitimate. They spoke with a male and provided him with banking information. Subsequently they found two e-transfers from their bank account for over several thousand dollars. A file number was provided to the complainant in order for their bank to attempt to reverse the transactions.

• Feb. 22, North Delta Public Safety Building, 11375 84th Ave.: Complainant reported they had sent a video of themselves in a compromising situation to what turned out to be a fake Instagram account, which was now demanding a large sum of money to prevent release of the video. No money was sent as the bank blocked the transfer. Police advised the complainant of internet security scams and tips to prevent future extortion attempts.

• Feb. 25, 11000-block Nordel Way: Police stopped a vehicle unable to maintain lane control and travelling at 30 km/h in a 60 km/h zone. The driver stated they had had a drink “a while ago.” Two breath samples were provided, with both reading “fail.” The driver was given a 90-day immediate roadside suspension and a 30-day driving suspension. Their driver’s licence was seized and their vehicle impounded. A friend arrived and transported the suspect home.

• Feb. 25, North Delta Public Safety Building, 11375 84th Ave.: Complainant reported they were the victim of a fraud while applying for a Nexus card on a non-governmental site. Charges were made to the complainant’s credit card, which are now being investigated by the credit card company. The card has been cancelled.
