Delta Police Seize Drugs, Weapons From North Delta Highrise

Darpan News Desk, 08 Feb, 2019
  • Delta Police Seize Drugs, Weapons From North Delta Highrise

In North Delta a community district police office is conveniently located across the street from the largest high-rise building in the area. So when the public began to notice an increase in what appeared to be property and drug-related crime in the area surrounding the Delta Rise, at 11967 80th Ave, a number of people brought their concerns directly to the local police office.

 

In January 2019 the issue was deemed a Tactical Management Team priority by Delta Police, and the Patrol Support Team was assigned to investigate the complaints. The Team is made of plain clothes and uniform police officers, and its members have the time to do more in-depth investigations, in support of Patrol officers.

 

Acting on information received from the public and observations made by the investigating officers, the Patrol Support Team executed a search warrant on a unit in the Delta Rise on January 31, 2019.

 
 

“A man and woman were arrested without incident at the Delta Rise that morning. Police also seized a vehicle, and recovered drugs, weapons, cash, stolen identity documents, and stolen property from several thefts in the surrounding area,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police. The weapons seized include OC spray, knives, rifle parts and ammunition.

 

Leykauf notes that Delta Police have a very good relationship with the Delta Rise management and strata, and police have been in ongoing communications with them regarding next steps and crime prevention.

 

Delta Police has forwarded a number of suggested charges on this investigation to Crown Counsel. In the meantime Patrol Support Team officers have been actively contacting and returning the various stolen items that were recovered.
