North Delta crime beat, week of Jan. 4

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. 4, 8:10 a.m., 13000-block 80th Ave.: Police observed a vehicle with a licence plate that did not match the description of the vehicle. Police conducted a traffic stop, where the driver advised he had swapped plates to take the vehicle to the shop. The driver advised police that he knew he had no insurance and thought it was okay because he was only driving a short distance. (It wasn’t okay.) The vehicle was towed, the licence plate was seized and the driver was served a no insurance violation ticket.

• Jan. 4, 4:39 p.m., 11300-block 83rd Ave.: Complainant reported a suspicious male in the area and advised police that her teenage daughter was walking down the street when a black sedan slowed down beside her. The driver proceeded to stare at the teenager, but did not make any verbal contact. The driver then left the area. Police canvassed the neighbourhood for any video of the incident.

• Jan. 4, 10:52 p.m., 11500-block Nordel Way: Police conducted a traffic stop after observing a vehicle having trouble staying in its lane. Police observed that the driver had bloodshot eyes and an odour of liquor coming from within the vehicle. An approved screening device demand was read, resulting in a fail. A second demand also resulted in a fail. The driver was given an immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was towed.

• Jan. 7, 12:48 p.m., 10700-block 59th Ave.: Complainant reported that his bank had advised him that an unknown person had hacked his account and sent two e-transfers totaling almost $1,000. The bank was investigating and requested the complainant create a police file for awareness. The bank will also be refunding the complainant the lost money. Police provided the complainant with information on securing his online banking and for contacting anti-fraud and ID theft services.

• Jan. 9, 9:02 p.m., 7000-block 120th St.: A loss prevention officer reported a theft in progress at a nearby store. He had followed a female out of the store to the parking lot and several items were dropped. Police attended and arrested the female for theft and discovered that she had stolen personal hygiene products and clothing worth $320. The stolen items were retrieved and the loss prevention officer advised they did not want to press charges. The female was banned from the store for one year.

• Jan. 9, 10:46 p.m., 11900-block 88th Ave.: Complainant reported a fight in progress in front of a nearby business. The complainant was calling from the 10th floor of a building two blocks away and believed there to be a “huge group of people” fighting and one person had fallen. Police responded and discovered four adults with three children standing in the parking lot. The adults had been enjoying their night out and did not appear to be involved in any fight. The adults advised that the children had been chasing each other in the parking lot and one fell down, which was consistent with the complainants’ observations.

• Jan. 10, 1:27 a.m., 11900-block 80th Ave.: Complainant called to report a noise complaint on an upper floor of their building. Police attended and heard several voices and loud music from a unit. Upon knocking on door, the music turned off and those inside made a failed attempt at pretending that they were not home. The property rep eventually opened the door and the occupants were educated on noise bylaw offences. The home owner was apologetic and agreed to turn off music and send people home.

• Jan. 10, 2:00 p.m., 7200-block 120th St.: Police were called to a four-vehicle collision. The four drivers were stopped at the light facing eastbound, when the light turned green and the last driver pre-accelerated. This caused a chain reaction in the line-up, resulting in multiple rear-end collisions. There was minor damage to all vehicles and no injury to any party. The driver was deemed to be responsible for the collision and received a violation ticket for “follow too close.”
