Vancouver Police warn public of jury duty scam - 05/21/15
Vancouver, Wash. - Vancouver Police recently took a report from a victim of the "jury duty scam". This scam involves the victim being contacted by telephone from someone claiming to be with a local law enforcement agency, telling the victim a warrant for their arrest has been issued for failure to appear for jury duty, and that they need to pay fines to clear the warrant. The suspect then instructs the victim to purchase cash cards in varying amounts over the course of several days and provide the code numbers on the back of the card to the suspect once the cards are purchased.

The Vancouver Police Department reminds the public never to provide financial or personal information over the telephone from an unsolicited caller. If you receive an unsolicited call from someone claiming to be from an official organization who asks for financial or personal information, hang up and do not call any numbers the person calling may provide. To confirm the contact information for an agency or organization, visit their official website online or reference the telephone directory to confirm contact information. Many scam artists will further the scam by creating fake caller ID numbers (caller ID Phishing scam) which represent actual official agency phone numbers. Always confirm the numbers yourself before providing any information over the telephone.

The FBI website has a list of many of the common and emerging frauds: http://www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/frauds-from-a-to-z.

If you believe you have been the victim of identity theft or fraud related to a scam please contact your local law enforcement agency and make a police report.

Vancouver Police post unclaimed recovered stolen property online - 05/01/15
Vancouver, Wash. - On April 24 and 25, 2015, Detectives from the East and West Neighborhood Response Teams served a search warrant on a storage unit and vehicle, resulting in the recovery of hundreds of pieces of stolen property. Over the past week, Detectives have been cataloging those items and returning as many as can be matched with the owner.

In an effort to locate the owners of the remaining property, photos of these items have been posted on the Vancouver Police Department website http://bit.ly/1dBKhSN and a phone message line (360) 487 7450 has been set up where the owners of the property can leave specific details to begin the process of reclaiming their property. This phone line will remain active for 30 days and retrieval of messages will begin on Tuesday May 5.

To reclaim property, individuals must call the message line and be prepared to prove ownership. None of the property will be available for public viewing and the Vancouver Police Department will not accommodate walk-in traffic for individuals wishing to reclaim property who have not called the message line first and been contacted by the Vancouver Police Department to pick up their property.

Here are the required steps:
* Call (360) 487-7450 and leave a detailed message with your full name, a phone number where you can be reached Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm, and the item number for the property listed.
o Each photo has an item number issued which is visible by scrolling the mouse over or clicking on photo posted online. The item number will be one of the required pieces of information when leaving the phone message.
o Do not call other Vancouver Police Department numbers to reclaim property related to the photos posted online. This message line (360) 487-7450 has been set up specifically for the purpose of managing calls related to this property recovery case.
* All callers must be prepared to provide a police report number, insurance claim, or other documentation of where the item(s) were reported stolen as well as a description of the item(s).
* Caller must have identifying numbers, serial numbers, markings, and a valid way to identify the property. Property will not be released without adequate proof of ownership.

Messages will be retrieved from the phone line in the order they are received. A representative from the Vancouver Police Department will call individuals that have provided the required information to confirm that documentation of proof of ownership exists and will provide instructions on how to retrieve property.

The process of documenting, cataloging and identifying recovered stolen property is a slow and meticulous process and we appreciate the public's patience as we continue to move forward with the necessary steps and processes to insure that as much property as possible is returned to the rightful owners.

Additional charges for Vancouver massage therapist (Photo) - 04/28/15
Vancouver, Wash. - The Vancouver Police Department has forwarded information to the Clark County Prosecuting Attorney's Office for fifteen (15) additional counts of Indecent Liberties against licensed massage therapist Valentin Delgado. The total number of charges in Clark County is 18, including the three which Delgado was arrested for on March 30, 2015. The new counts resulted from a multitude of calls to the Vancouver Police Department Tip Line from former massage clients who reported alleged inappropriate touching and conduct during the course of their massages, some dating back to 2013.

Four callers reported inappropriate contact during massages which occurred in Cowlitz County, these will be referred to the Longview Police Department for follow-up.

Valentin Delgado has not been located and there is currently a felony warrant for his arrest for Failure to Appear and three Counts of Bail Jump.

The Vancouver Police Department is cooperating fully with the Washington State Department of Health investigation, with the goal of permanently suspending Valentin Delgado's license to provide massage therapy.

The Vancouver Police would like to thank everyone who called to the Tip Line to make reports or share information in this case. If you were a client of Valentin Delgado and wish to make a report, please call (360) 487-7399 and leave a message for Detective Boswell regarding case number V15-3284.

Vancouver Police inundated with calls regarding recovered property - 04/27/15
Vancouver, Wash. - The Vancouver Police Department has been inundated with calls from citizens who have been the victim of a past burglary inquiring about whether their property was among the stolen property recovered on April 24 and 25.

At this time Detectives are still doing inventory, cataloging the property, contacting individuals that can be identified as the owners, and are returning the identified property as quickly as possible. As more property is identified, owners will be contacted. Police are asking citizens not to call dispatch, evidence, or the department directly at this time since the process of cataloging the recovered property is not yet complete and staff are unable to manage the volume of phone calls coming in.

Throughout the next few days the Vancouver Police Department will be posting the property that has yet to be connected with an owner on our website. That page will be up later this week with photos of the property, along with the process to claim property. A link to that page will be sent out to media and through social media as soon as it is established.

We appreciate the patience of those who are wondering if their property has been recovered and assure the public that the detectives involved in this case are working as quickly and thoroughly as possible to identify and contact the rightful owners.

Although over $50,000 of stolen property was recovered in this case, this is just a small percentage of what is reported stolen annually. Often property is not able to be reunited with the owner. The Vancouver Police Department reminds property owners to log serial numbers of valuables, store that information in a secure location, and make a detailed police report in the event of a theft or burglary. These details greatly assist in the return of property to the rightful owner in the event it is ever stolen and later located.
