DELMARVA Top 40 WSTW/WILMINGTON, DE morning maven SPENCER GRAVES, "is being credited by WILMINGTON police with helping to catch a person who they said was stealing items from unlocked cars in Union Park Gardens early THURSDAY morning," reports WDEL.
GRAVES said he was, "walking his dog about 3:30a before work and encountered a woman getting out of a parked car. When his dog barked and alerted the woman to his presence, GRAVES said he wished her a 'good morning' but she didn't respond and walked away from him, prompting him to become suspicious and call police. GRAVES said he told an emergency dispatcher that he would follow the woman. Police said he reported that the woman had been pulling door handles to cars to see if they were unlocked and was able to enter another vehicle and remove items inside."
"There are far too many crimes that go unsolved and unhandled," GRAVES added. "Even though it was something small with someone breaking into a car -- to me -- it's got to stop."
