Man arrested; charged with breaking and entering

Wilmington Police arrested a man Monday night who may be involved in over twenty break-ins in the past week.

Ian Michael Moore was arrested and charged with breaking into five local businesses early Tuesday morning.

He was taken into custody by officers after "acting suspicious" around the 5700th block of Wrightsville Avenue.

Sweetwater Café and Nu Image Salon were just two of the five businesses authorities say Moore broke into Monday night.

In each case, a window was broken in, and cash was taken from the business.

Detectives are now looking into the possibility that Moore could be involved in as many as 20 other local break-ins.
