The complainant was advised to notify their bank with information of the fraudulent activity and provide police with details of the activity in order to proceed with an investigation.

• Jan. 25, 7100-block 120th St.: While police were in a business investigating a theft, they observed a vehicle stunt driving and speeding on the road. Police pursued the vehicle and a traffic stop was initiated. When asked about his driving behaviour, the driver indicated he had just been at the gym and wanted to get home. The vehicle was impounded for seven days for stunt driving and a violation ticket was issued for driving without due care.
