Troopers Seek Public’s Help in Identifying Theft Suspect
Marydel, DE - The Delaware State Police is asking the public’s assistance in attempting to identify a male subject that made unauthorized charges to credit cards that were stolen from a Marydel rest home.
The incident took place sometime between Wednesday August 13, 2014 and Friday August 15, 2014 when someone removed four debit cards from a safe located within the Hidden Acres Rest Home on Mowely Lane in Marydel.
