Chris Clark : Police are seeking the public’s help in locating vandals who recently struck the Bayshore Mobile Home Park.The Delaware State Police are still seeking the public’s assistance in locating a suspect, or suspects, involved in vandalizing 26 homes in the Bayshore Mobile Home Park, off of Cedar Neck Road near Ocean View.

Master Cpl. Gary Fournier, public information officer for the Delaware State Police said that the vandalism, which occurred on Feb. 11 between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., was reported to police by a park resident who noticed a neighbor’s home was damaged.

The suspect or suspects shattered glass doors and windows of residences — some that were adjacent to each other and some that were not. The suspect or suspects entered the unoccupied seasonal homes, police said; however, no missing property has been reported to police.

Fournier said that, while it is not common for homes to be broken into without items being stolen, he noted that some of the victims may have not been able to inventory their belongings, as they are seasonal homes.

The total damage to the homes is estimated to be more than $9,000.

Fournier said citizens reporting information or tips to police often leads to the arrest of individuals involved in any type of crime.

“Any information provided to investigators may be helpful in locating and arresting the individuals responsible for the damages to the victim’s personal property.”

If anyone has any information as to the identity of the suspect or suspects involved, they are asked to contact Det. J Rowley at (302) 856-5850, ext. 223. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
