North Delta crime beat, week of March 15

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:

• March 15, 3:31 a.m., Highway 91 and Nordel Way: Police were conducting proactive traffic enforcement when they searched a licence plate in the system that revealed inactive insurance. Police conducted a traffic stop and identified the driver. The driver was issued a no insurance ticket as well as had their vehicle towed.

• March 16, 11:01 p.m., 8400-block Nordel Way: Police conducted a traffic stop after observing a vehicle being unable to stay in its lane. Police noticed an odour of liquor from the driver as they spoke. An approved screening device demand was read and the driver provided two samples, both resulting in a “fail.” The driver was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition as well as had their vehicle towed.

• March 17, 4:09 a.m., 7000-block Highway 91: Complainant reported a large beaver attempting to cross the highway and was concerned that the sheer size of the beaver would cause drivers to swerve and possibly cause an accident. Prior to police attendance the male was able to escort the unruly creature back to safety. Police attempted to locate the beaver and the dam, but were unsuccessful due to the dense brush and grass. The complainant believed that the beaver likely was unfamiliar with the area and attempted to cross due to confusion.

• March 17, 9:53 a.m., Alex Fraser Bridge: Police were conducting proactive patrols when they observed a vehicle accelerating at a high rate of speed of 125 km/h in a posted 70 km/h zone. Police issued the driver an excessive speeding ticket and had their vehicle towed.

• March 19, 6:44 a.m., 5700-block 104th St.: Police were conducting proactive patrols when they observed a vehicle accelerating as a high rate of speed of 108 km/h in a posted 60 km/h zone. Police issued the driver an excessive speeding ticket and had their vehicle towed.

• March 19, 9:22 a.m., location withheld: Dispatch advised police of a dropped 911 call from a nearby residence. Dispatch reported a little girl had called saying that there were monsters hiding under her bed as well as in her closet, and that they were being mean and scaring her. Police attended and spoke with the little girl, who directed them to her bedroom. Police conducted an extensive search in the home for these monsters and subsequently scared off several of the described monsters from the little girl’s bedroom. Police then gave the girl several gold Delta Police badge stickers and advised her that they will keep her safe in the future. The monsters were advised never to return to the home.

• March 19, 2:51 p.m., 8000-block 120th St.: Employee from a nearby bank called police to report that a customer had deposited $70 USD counterfeit cash into his business account. Police attended and examined the currency, which looked very realistic, but was confirmed by the bank to be counterfeit. The bank did not want to press charges as they believed the customer may not have been aware the cash was counterfeit. The cash was turned over to police for destruction as per policy.

• March 20, 5:09 p.m., 7000-block Highway 91: Complainant reported that there was a garbage can rolling around and causing a risk to traffic on the highway. Police attended and located the bin with household kitchen supplies and debris in it. The garbage was collected and logged in exhibits for destruction.
