South Delta crime beat, week of July 28

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 South 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.

• July 30, 10:12 a.m., Beach Grove Road and 12th Avenue: Police were dispatched to a driving complaint where a vehicle was observed exiting the dyke and failing to stop at the stop sign, crossing a double yellow line and failing to stop at the Beach Grove Road/12th Avenue stop sign.
