South Delta crime beat, week of Oct. 12

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.

The following are some of the calls police responded to in the previous week:


• Oct. 14, 3:54 p.m., 4600-block 51st St.: Police were notified that a young male had been caught on video surveillance knocking over the barrel of used oil from the cafeteria. The act was caught on video and showed that it occurred the day before. The barrel is stored outside and the oil spilled all over the ground, requiring Absorb-All to clean up the spill. The complainant advised that he wished to proceed by contacting the male’s guardian and meeting with the youth to have him clean up the damage.

• Oct. 16, 9:45 a.m., location withheld: The complainant reported a break-and-enter at her residence that occurred at approximately 5:30 a.m. while she was home with her family sleeping. Police attended and the investigation revealed that the husband had left his vehicle unlocked and parked in the driveway overnight with his car and house keys inside the vehicle. Personal belongings valued at approximately $3,000 were stolen. Police recommended changing the house’s locks, car keys and cancelling their bank cards.

• Oct. 18, 7:10 a.m., 4200-block Arthur Dr.: Police were called regarding a report of shots fired in the area. Police attended the area and located a hunter far in a field. Nothing criminal and nothing suspicious, as hunting season is in effect at this point in the year.

• Oct. 12, 11:58 a.m., 400-block Milsom Wynd: The complainant reported that a male with an off-leash dog was at the park. She was walking when an off-leash dog ran over and jumped on her. The dog was not aggressive but the complainant felt the owner did not have control over the dog in a leashed area. When she told the male to put the dog on leash, the male began to swear and yell, causing the complainant to feel uncomfortable and leave the area. Police advised her to follow up with Delta Bylaws should she see the dog owner, or to call police should any future confrontations occur.

• Oct. 13, 11:58 a.m., location withheld: The complainant reported her neighbour had hired landscapers and they had cut a hedge on the complainant’s property. The complainant and the neighbour have had ongoing issues over the trimming of the hedges separating their properties. The complainant stated the hedges are located on her property and she has previously advised the neighbour not to cut them. Police spoke with the landscaper, who advised that he and his partner mistakenly cut the wrong hedge which was located on the complainant’s property. The neighbour was aware of the accident and claimed he did not intentionally have the hedge cut. No offence committed.

• Oct. 14, 1:47 p.m., 5200-block 1A Ave.: The complainant reported that someone had broken into his vehicle and stolen a suitcase while the vehicle was parked in the driveway of his residence. He reported that the theft occurred sometime overnight, and the suitcase had been recovered approximately three houses away and nothing was missing. The complainant told police that he accidentally left his vehicle unlocked which is how someone was able to easily gain access to it.

• Oct. 14, 6:59 p.m., 5000-block 12th Ave.: A federal public health officer reported a male had crossed into Canada to attend a meeting. The male was read the Quarantine Act and told he needed to quarantine. The male stated that he would be attending the meeting, and that he would not be wearing a mask. Police located the male — unmasked — at the meeting. He was served a violation ticket for $1,150.
