Police are looking for a suspect involved in two Dec. 16 burglaries

Detectives are asking the public’s help in identifying a man who burglarized two Dover businesses the morning of Dec. 16.

The investigation began around 3:00 a.m. when troopers responded to a burglar alarm at Airport Discount Liquors, 1148 S. Bay Rd., said police spokesman Cpl. John Day. Arriving troopers discovered an unknown person had broken through a cinderblock wall in the rear of the business, and did the same at the Oriental Spanish Food Mart at 1150 S. Bay Rd.

The suspect stole cash, food, liquor, and cigarettes from the businesses and fled before troopers arrived. Detectives have obtained video surveillance of the suspect, and are asking the public for help identifying him.

Anyone with information about the suspect burglar’s identity is asked to call Det. DiGiacomo at Troop 3 at 741-2816, or by using the DSP Mobile Crime Tip application, which can be downloaded at www.delaware.gov/apps. Information also may be provided through Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333, via the Internet at www.tipsubmit.com or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) by using the keyword “DSP.”
