State Police Probe Thefts From Vehicles


Smyrna – Over the past couple of weeks, the Delaware State Police has seen an increase in thefts from vehicles at over a dozen locations south of Smyrna, particularly the Sunnyside Road and Sheridan Lane areas, according to Delaware State Police Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier.

Fournier said that State Police learned that an undetermined number of suspects entered approximately at least a dozen different vehicles stealing items and also rummaging through unsecured vehicles. The suspects stole items ranging from purses to electronic devices, and U.S. currency. In most of these cases the vehicles were parked in the victim’s driveways and were unsecured. In one particular case, a surveillance camera captured an image of a suspect.
