On July 9 an officer attended the 7000 block of 120th Street and located a male who matched the description of a suspected perfume seller. A fraud investigation was conducted, and police seized 130 bottles of suspected counterfeit perfume, and arrested the man. The investigation is currently ongoing. 

“Police acknowledge there has been speculation recently on social media about perfume sellers potentially incapacitating clients via drugs. There was no evidence to support these allegations in this instance,” said DPD public affairs coordinator Cris Leykauf. “Furthermore police have not had any complaints of this nature in Delta.”
