North Delta crime beat, week of Jan. 18

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:

• Jan. 18, 9:25 a.m., 8000-block 120th St.: A loss prevention officer at a nearby store called police regarding a female that they had in custody for theft. Police found that the female had stolen approximately $40 in makeup. The stolen merchandise was recovered and the consequences of future infractions were discussed with the female. The female was released after being informed she was banned from the store.

• Jan. 18, 10:56 a.m., 10700-block 72nd Ave.: Police were conducting mobile speed enforcement westbound when a vehicle drove by at a speed of 123 km/h in a posted 60 km/h. Police stopped the vehicle, the driver was issued an excessive speeding ticket and the vehicle being towed.

• Jan. 19, 1:46 p.m., 10800-block 72nd Ave.: Police were conducting mobile speed enforcement westbound when a vehicle drove by at a speed of 121 km/h in a 60 km/h zone. The driver was issued a ticket and the vehicle was towed. The driver got a written warning for not having his “N” visible as well as having too many people in the car.

• Jan. 19, 6:59 p.m., 8400-block Brooke Rd.: Police were working proactive patrols in the area when they observed a vehicle travelling eastbound at a high rate of speed and swerving over double solid lines. The vehicle then made a sudden stop, pulling to the curb. Police conducted a traffic stop and the driver stepped out of the vehicle and attempted to walk away. Police instructed the driver to return to the vehicle and notified the driver the reason of the traffic stop was to check for sobriety. Police read the approved screening device demand and performed the test twice, which both resulted in fails. The male was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was towed.

• Jan. 21, 1:41 p.m., 11900-block 88th Ave.: A worker called police to report a female inside his store was extremely distraught after almost falling victim to a bitcoin fraud. The worker explained to police that he noticed the female on the phone while trying to use the bitcoin machine. The worker stated that he could tell something was wrong, and asked the female to hang up the phone while police were called. It was determined that the worker had just interrupted a scam in which the female was being instructed to surrender her social insurance number and “empty her bank account” into the bitcoin machine. Police advised the female to reach out to Canada Services to request a new social insurance number, and advise her bank of the situation so her accounts can be more closely monitored. Police advised the female not to answer any phone numbers she does not recognize.

• Jan. 21, 5:13 p.m., 108th Street: Complainant reported that her son had been approached by an unknown male who offered to sell him drugs on his way home from school. Police contacted the mom and advised that they would notify the school liaison officer and perform future patrols of the area during after-school hours. The mom will also notify the police if her son comes in contact with the individual again.

• Jan. 21, 8:53 p.m., 10000-block 120th St.: Police noticed a vehicle that was unoccupied and running on the side of the road. The vehicle later left westbound and swerved multiple times before eventually heading northbound on 120th Street, driving 90 km/h in a 60 km/h zone. A traffic stop was initiated and a distinct odour of liquor was detected, as well as slurred speech. An approved screening device demand was read and the male provided two samples resulting in fails. The male was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was towed.

• Jan. 22, 9:15 p.m., 9000-block 119th St.: Dispatch received an abandoned 911 call from a nearby location. Police attended and spoke to the female, who advised she and her two friends had been playing “hot potato” and had dialed 911 by accident.
