Delta Police arrest two suspects related to a property crime spike in Tsawwassen
In the early morning hours of July 18, 2018 Delta Police officers were patrolling parts of Tsawwassen that have experienced a recent spike in property crime, specifically theft from auto.
While in the area, officers attempted to engage two suspicious males, who fled on foot. Police then began an extensive search in an effort to locate them. The men were eventually found hiding in a Porsche Cayenne parked on a street, along with what was believed to be a significant amount of stolen property.
The vehicle and property were seized, and police are working to identify rightful owners. The stolen items have been linked back to theft from autos in the past two weeks in the English Bluff area of Tsawwassen and includes:
- Insurance papers and Identification
- Boat and car keys/FOBs
- GPS units
- One bike was recovered from the vehicle and has been returned to its owner.
Both men, who are known to police and are not local to South Delta, were arrested on outstanding warrants and breach of court conditions. Charges are pending related to Possession of Stolen Property.
Delta Police have focused efforts on this particular area of Tsawwassen due to an unusual increase in property crime. This morning’s proactive efforts by Patrol officers have led to the successful apprehension of the individuals who Delta Police believe to be responsible for a large portion of property crime in the English Bluff area.
