“In the six incidents that were reported to Delta police, three windows were smashed to gain access to items such as cash, wallets, passports, garage door openers, and in one case a lamp; one lock was punched out,” said DPD in a post on their Facebook page Tuesday afternoon. “In two instances the vehicles were left unsecured, and the suspect took this opportunity to take a passport, seat belt cutter, and a portable handle for a disabled person - thus showing that it doesn't matter what you leave visible in your car, thieves see this as a crime of opportunity.

“A reminder to all residents of Delta to please do not leave any valuables in your vehicle at any time.”

If you believe that you have been a victim of theft from auto, please contact DPD at 604-946-4411.
