North Delta crime beat, week of Sept. 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:

• Sept. 16, 12:08 a.m., 120th Street and Nordel Way: Police were conducting traffic enforcement in the area and observed a vehicle drive by at a high rate of speed. The vehicle was travelling in excess of 110 km/h in a clearly marked 60km/h speed zone. The vehicle was pulled over and another police officer came to conduct a concurrent impaired investigation. The driver was issued a 90-day driving prohibition, served a violation ticket for excessive speed, and was also determined to be contrary to his restrictions as an “N” driver. The vehicle was towed and the driver along with the passenger opted to walk from the scene.

• Sept. 16, 7:09 p.m., 118th Street and 82nd Avenue: A resident contacted police to advise that they had located a dog running loose in the area. Police attended and took custody of the dog. While conducting patrols in the area, police located the owner who was actively looking for his dog “Louie,” who was then returned safely home.

• Sept. 18, 7:13 a.m., 11300-block 88th Ave.: A complainant contacted police to report a theft from his vehicle that occurred in front of his residence during the night. The owner of the vehicle noticed that his vehicle had been ransacked. No noticeable damage to the vehicle was found. It is believed that entry was gained by an unsecured door.

• Sept. 18, 11:52 a.m., 6200-block Rosewood Dr.: Delta police responded to a report of a residential alarm in the area. Upon attendance, police spoke with the homeowner and determined that the alarm sound was a rodent alarm to scare away moles, rats and mice. The homeowner was reassured.

• Sept. 18, 1:45 p.m., Highway 91 and Nordel Way off-ramp: A semi-truck and trailer was travelling on the Nordel Way overpass when the driver took the off ramp in the wrong direction. The driver almost collided head-on with another semi-truck and trailer that had taken the exit. The truck was stopped, there were no signs of impairments and the driver advised police that he was confused. The semi-truck was escorted off the highway. The driver was served a violation ticker for driving without due care and driving without consideration.

• Sept. 19, 1:09 p.m., 800-block Cliveden Pl.: A complainant reported a suspicious phone call she received while at work. An unknown male had phoned and advised the female that her social insurance number was “blacklisted.” The unknown male then asked for the female to confirm her social insurance number and postal code, which she did. The female disconnected with the male and believed the call to be suspicious. The female was already in contact with Equifax and Transunion as well as with her bank. Police are reminding the public to not provide any personal information to anyone over the phone.

• Sept. 20, 10:55 p.m., 7000-block 120th St.: A restaurant employee reported an unruly customer inside the restaurant. The employee advised a male had re-entered the restaurant after ordering food at the drive-thru and began yelling at the staff as a result of his incorrect order. At one point the male threw a bag full of food over the counter towards the employees. Police attended the male’s residence and informed him that his is now banned from the restaurant. Although unhappy, the male understood the message.

• Sept. 21, 10:34 p.m., 68th Avenue and 120th Street: Police were conducting stationary enforcement to specifically target impaired drivers in the area. Police conducted a traffic stop and noticed the distinct odour of liquor on the driver’s breath. The driver provided two breath samples, and was served with a 90-day driving prohibition, a violation ticket, and had his vehicle towed away.
