What are the chances of a police officer questioning a suspect at the exact moment a fraudulent package arrives?
Vancouverite Trevor Vipong says he had given up trying to find the person who stole his credit card information when DHL called him asking him to pay fees for the car parts he had ordered.
When he realized the package was for the person who had stolen his information he managed to get the address where the package was going to be delivered.
He says he called the Vancouver Police without expecting anything, but when an officer went to investigate, good timing was on his side.
“So DHL pulls up and the guy walks up to the door and says ‘Hey it’s Trevor there’ and the guy at the door goes ‘Oh yeah he’s just downstairs’ and the cop goes ‘Ah that’s funny because I know for a fact he doesn’t live here, I just got off the phone with him.”
He says the officer called him to share the story and let him know the man had been arrested.
“About an hour later after talking to him he calls me and says ‘Hey Trevor guess what, you’ll never guess what happened, like I went to this place and I knock on the door and start talking to the guy and as I’m talking to him DHL pulls out to make a delivery’ like totally crazy.”
