No suspicious behavior say Delta police

Delta police have confirmed that there is no suspicious behavior or criminal intent following a report of a suspicious person and vehicle earlier this week.

According to DPD in a news release issued Friday afternoon, officers have located and spoken with the driver of the vehicle involved in the Oct. 28 reported suspicious circumstance, involving a burgundy vehicle.

The report concerned an interaction between a man associated to a burgundy car and a teenage girl. This came on the heels of an Oct. 15 incident, whereby a teenage girl reported that a man driving a burgundy car exited his car and told her to come in the vehicle with him.

“Police officers have identified the driver and have interviewed both him and the teen who made the report on Oct. 28,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for DPD. “Police have determined there was no wrongdoing in this instance, and no ill intent. No offence was committed. Furthermore the driver from the Oct. 28 incident does not match the description of the man from the earlier incident.”

The man from the Oct. 15 incident, which is still under active police investigation, is described as Caucasian, in his 50s, with white hair cut short over the ears and longer on top, and was wearing brown baggy pants with a blue T-shirt at the time of the incident.

Anyone who may have information regarding the Oct. 15 incident is asked to call the police non-emergency line at 604-946-4411.
