South Delta crime beat, week of Oct. 5

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. 6, 6:55 a.m., 4000-block 64th St.: Complainant advised police that he had left his vehicle running in his driveway in order for the vehicle to warm up. While the complainant was away from the vehicle, an unknown individual popped the front driver-side tire, and scratched an inappropriate image on the driver-side door. Complainant was advised to report the damage (approximately $500) to ICBC.

• Oct. 7, 9:06 p.m., Delta Police Department headquarters: Complainant attended DPD headquarters to report that a false anti-virus company was attempting to defraud her through email. An email account of antivirus360@icloud.com messaged the complainant to inform her that she had subscribed to an anti-virus service for $389. The email also instructed the complainant to call two international phone numbers if she wished to cancel the service. The complainant called the numbers, and discovered that the company had her banking info. The complainant cancelled her bank and credit cards, and informed her bank of the fraud.

• Oct. 8, 12:54 a.m., 5000-block Ladner Trunk Rd.: During proactive patrols, a Delta police officer located a vehicle that had a history of impaired driving associated with it. A vehicle stop was conducted to ensure sobriety. Police identified a passenger who was in breach of a curfew and located drugs, multiple cell phones and $2,880 inside the vehicle.

• Oct. 10, 2:53 p.m., 6000-block 72nd St.: Police were dispatched to a reported trespass and mischief. The complainant advised that a group of youth on bikes was seen on the commercial property picking up gas cans and fire extinguishers. Before he confronted them, four of the five teens fled into the woods, with one remaining on the scene. Upon arrival, the complainant advised that he did not want to pursue any charges against the teen that stayed as he thought he was “an honourable young man” for remaining on scene. Police located the other teens and explained the jeopardy the group faced with trespassing on private property. The complainant was satisfied with police actions and offered the teen who stayed on the scene a job, if he ever wanted one, for his integrity.

• Oct. 5, 1:21 a.m., 1000-block 50th St.: Police conducting patrols noted a vehicle with its front passenger door open. The officer observed that the vehicle looked to have been rummaged through. Owner confirmed the door was left unlocked.

The driver indicated the road conditions and visibility were poor due to the fog, and that he could not see the stop sign when heading westbound on English Bluff. Fortunately there were no injuries and property damage was minimal.

• Oct. 7, 9:00 a.m., 1300-block 56th St.: Manager arrived at work to discover that someone had thrown a mix of chocolate bubble tea, macaroni and cheese, shaving cream, toilet paper and hot cocoa powder all over the front doors and windows. No damage to premises, but cleanup was required.

• Oct. 8, 5:00 p.m., 4300 Salish Sea Way: Complainant called to report three sports cars parked on private property, with concerns that drivers might start doing donuts, etc. Police attended and observed three Audis with male drivers. The three males said they were part of an Audi car club and were taking photos. Police provided education regarding donuts and how this causes property damage, as well as the risks of losing control of the vehicle. All three drivers left the property and were advised not to return.
