Delta Police arrested a man in the 7000 block of Nicholson Road just after 3 pm on August 3 in connection with a series of overnight residential break and enters, thefts from auto, and trespassing in North Delta last month.
The man, of no fixed address, and is known to police, is believed to be responsible for a number of incidents, primarily in the Sunshine Hills neighbourhood between July 16-18. In one instance, he is suspected of trespassing on several properties before gaining entry into one residence via an unlocked garage. Officers had increased patrols in the area, and spotted the suspect on Aug. 3, arresting him without incident.
“We’d like to use this opportunity to remind Delta residents to check their vehicles nightly, ensuring they are locked, and no valuables are left inside,” says Inspector Guy Leeson, head of DPD’s uniformed Patrol Section. “Our patrol members work 24/7, but it’s a good reminder for those away on vacation to ensure your home is locked, lit, and being routinely checked by family, friends, or neighbours.”
Delta Police will be recommending a number of charges including trespass by night, break and enter, and theft.
