North Delta crime beat, week of Nov. 16

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:

• Nov. 16, 5:03 a.m., 7000-block 115th St.: Complainant reported an audible alarm coming from a construction site. Police attended and found a home under construction with a loud buzzing being emitted from an exterior panel. Police were able to silence the buzzing. Police did not find anyone on site. The exterior fencing had been pulled open, however there were no obvious signs of theft. Police secured the house and moved the fencing to close the area off again. Nothing suspicious was noted at the time.

• Nov. 17, 9:05 p.m., 8000-block 120th St.: Police observed a vehicle exit a parking lot and turn without using its turn signal, resulting in a traffic stop. Police detected a distinct odour of liquor on the driver. Police read an approved screening device demand, which resulted in a fail. The male declined to take a second test. The vehicle was impounded and the driver received a 90-day initial roadside prohibition.

• Nov. 18, 10900-block 72nd Ave.: Police were conducting stationary laser speed enforcement where they observed a vehicle change lanes and accelerate very quickly. The vehicle’s speed was verified with radar at 111 km/h in a 60 km/h zone. Police conducted a vehicle stop and the driver was issued an excessive speeding ticket and the vehicle was towed.

• Nov. 20, 5:16 p.m., 11200-block Kendale View: Complainant reported he was being harassed online by an unknown male whom he had gamed with online for a year. The complainant stated that the male had been threatening him and his online friends. The complainant stated the feud was only through online gaming. Police advised the complainant to report the abusive behaviour to online moderators and to block him online.

• Nov. 20, 11:44 p.m., 8800-block 119th St.: Police conducted a traffic stop after witnessing a vehicle failing to come to a complete stop at two separate stop signs. In conversation with the driver, police noticed a distinct odour of liquor emanating from the driver’s breath. The driver stated that his last drink was three weeks ago. An approved screening device demand was read, resulting in a fail. The driver declined the right to request a second test. The driver was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and the car was impounded.

• Nov. 21, 8:39 p.m., 11700 Pinewood Dr.: Complainant called police advising that a small group of males had lit a small fire on the cement path at a nearby elementary school. Police located the group, who were cooking bacon bits atop a salvaged coke can using a candle. The group advised police that they were bored and had nothing better to do. The group agreed to pack up their belongings and head home for the night. There was no damage to property.

• Nov. 22, 3:43 p.m., location withheld: The complainant reported that her neighbour had urinated on the exterior wall of her residence. Police spoke to the neighbour, who stated that he was urinating on his own fence. Police warned that further complaints could result in an indecent act investigation as there were children and concerned parents residing at neighbouring residences. Police further advised the neighbour to be more considerate of others around him. The neighbour stated he understood and was apologetic.
