Crime tip: Don’t assume cops aren’t multi-lingual

A supposedly hysterical Calgary woman was interrupted in making a burglary report to a Calgary police officer by a call from her father to whom she explained, in French, that it was all an insurance scam and there had been no burglary.

Unfortunately one of the officers taking the report was Constable Charanjit Meharu who is fluent in seven languages… English, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Arabic, Gujarati and ( you knew this was coming) French.

“By the end, I had about 10 pages of notes and I said, ‘Merci beaucoup.’ She didn’t expect a brown guy to speak French.”
