North Delta crime beat, week of July 5

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:

• July 5-6, between 11:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m., Cliveden Avenue: Complainant reported $3,000 in ice cream stolen from a refrigerator truck. Three pallets of ice cream were stolen from the back of a parked unlocked delivery truck. The truck had just been restocked and was out for deliveries.

• July 5, 7:00 p.m., 112B Street: Complainant reported theft of his “Telemate” golf clubs valued at $3,000 from the bottom of his driveway.

• July 8, 9:56 a.m., 94A Avenue: Complainant called police to report family members intoxicated and fighting inside complainant’s residence. One sibling was punched for “talking trash” and the other retaliated. One of the siblings had left the residence prior to police arrival. Both parties separated and no charges were pursued. The incident appeared to be a consensual fight between two intoxicated siblings.

• July 10, North Delta Public Safety Building: Complainant reported losing $1,500 in an online scam. The complainant advised she had a male “sugar daddy” that she met through a dating app. They had an arrangement that the complainant would provide the other party with photos of her feet in exchange for payments, but she would return a portion of the money to him. After she received what appeared to be a transfer of funds (that did not go through), the complainant returned a portion of money via an anonymous Bitcoin account. Following receipt of the bitcoin the “sugar daddy” ghosted the complainant, who then discovered all the information he provided to her was false. Victim services was offered to the complainant, who was distraught.

• July 10, 10:55 p.m., Highway 91: A concerned driver called police to report concerns over a driver traveling south bound on the Alex Fraser Bridge that may be intoxicated. Police conducted a traffic stop and noticed a distinct odour of liquor. When the constable asked the driver when they had their last drink, the driver replied, “six months ago.” The driver was given the alcohol screening device to which they blew a “fail.” The driver received a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was impounded.

• July 10, 11:15 p.m., 120th Street: Police were flagged down by bystanders reporting an intoxicated male who was accusing people of stealing his cellphone. Police located the male, who was seen running and peering into an unoccupied police vehicle. When they started to speak to the male they noticed the distinct odor of liquor coming from his breath and he was slurring and staggering. Police did not believe he was able to care for himself due to his level of intoxication, so he was taken into custody with no issues and held until he sobered up.

• July 12, 110th Street: Complainant reported a male walking down the street carrying an assault rifle. Patrols located a young teenager matching the description but empty handed. The teen told officers he had been carrying his airsoft rifle around. He retrieved the rifle from the yard and he and it were returned to the custody of his mother. The teenager was apologetic, and was cautioned as to the potential implications of walking the streets carrying such an item.

• July 12, 9:35 p.m., 9500-block 120th St.: Police observed a vehicle being driven erratically at an estimated 20km/h. The vehicle stopped abruptly on a parking lot entrance ramp, then proceeded to park at a sharp angel. Subsequently, police conducted a vehicle stop only to reveal the strong odour of recently burned cannabis. The driver admitted to the consumption of cannabis three hours prior. The driver was given a standardized field sobriety test and performed poorly. He was severed a 24-hour driving prohibition. The vehicle was parked legally and the driver departed by taxi.
