Police Investigating Pair of Wilmington Home Break-Ins
The incidents occurred on Wednesday and Thursday and police are seeking two people of interest who a witness saw on Allen Park Drive.
Wilmington Police are looking for two people of interest in a pair of housebreaks that appear to be related.
On Wednesday, officers were called to Allen Park Drive where a resident reported that their home had been entered. A laptop and some miscellaneous jewelry were allegedly stolen from the property.
Then on Thursday, a Nichols Street resident told police that their home had also been entered and jewelry was taken.
According to Police Lt. Brian Pupa, the break-ins appear to have details in common. Both of the breaks happened during daytime hours while the residents were out of the house, and both homes were entered through first floor windows.
Though police do not currently have suspects, they would like residents to be on the lookout for two people of interest who a witness on Allen Park Drive saw in the area on Wednesday.
The witness told police they saw a light beige or possibly white two door Nissan Ultima, possibly with New Hampshire plates, at the scene. The vehicle was at least 10 years old and was driven by a male in his early 30s with a thick beard and mustache and medium length black hair.
In addition, there was a female in the vehicle who was in her late 20s or 30s with black hair that was pulled back into a ponytail. Anyone who may have information on the incidents or the people of interest are encouraged to call the Wilmington Police Department at (978) 658-5071.
“People who are home during the daytime hours, if they see anything suspicious they should feel free to contact us and we’ll have someone check into it,” said Pupa.
