Delaware grinch strikes

Dover Police are asking for the public’s help after a burglar stole a child’s presents, two days before Christmas.

Police say the unknown suspect got into the house in the 300 block of W. Division Street, Sunday night, through a window. Police say the robber made off with clothes, a kids DVD, a remote-controlled car and an Atari game system. 

The grinch is described as wearing a black hooded jacket with the word ECHO written on it in white, a white knit cap, white gloves and black pants. Anyone with any information about this incident can call the Dover Police at (302) 736-7111.
