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:

• Oct. 3, 11200-block 64th Ave.: Complainant reported a $47 ICBC rebate cheque was mailed to them in April but not received. The complainant believes that a former housemate had fraudulently cashed the cheque. Incident was reported for information purposes.

• Oct. 6, 6300-block 120th St.: Complainant reported they had lost their iPhone with attached wallet containing credit cards. Fraudulent transactions had been made at a gas station and convenience store. The complainant has cancelled all credit cards and the bank has advised they will be conducting an investigation with a possible reimbursement of funds. Bank statements to be provided to police in order to proceed with an investigation.

• Oct. 7, 11300-block 82A Ave.: Complainant reported that in late September the catalytic converter was stolen from their vehicle parked outside their residence. The complainant was unaware the converter had been stolen until the vehicle was seen by a mechanic. Police provided a file number for ICBC.

• Oct. 7, 8100-block 120th St.: A business reported three suspects were observed loading approximately $3,000 worth of meat into shopping bags and then exiting the store without payment. The suspects refused to stop when requested and were observed boarding the bus. Police were provided with a description of two males and a female and were able to locate the bus, but the suspects had departed at an earlier bus stop. A police patrol of the area located one shopping bag containing meat valued at $500. File is still under investigation, with images of suspects to be distributed for possible identification.

• Oct. 9, North Delta Public Safety Building, 11375 84th Ave.: Complainant reported a possible fraud as a company had sent them a cheque for $1,750 instead of the requested $150 to join a learning institute. The company then asked for a refund of the excessive funds. As the complainant believed they may have been a victim fraud, they were requesting advice on how to proceed with the situation. Police advised the complainant not to cash the possibly fraudulent cheque and to request the company to send only the required $150.

• Oct. 9, 8400-block 116th St.: Complainant reported the rear passenger window of their vehicle was smashed while it was parked on the street overnight. Nothing of value was taken from the vehicle. Police provided the complainant with a file number for ICBC purposes.
