Robbery Attempt Foiled

FEBRUARY 23, 2006 -- Police are crediting an alert woman with a phone call that stopped a robbery and put three men in handcuffs.

A resident at 311 Wright Street in Wilmington says he came home around lunchtime Thursday and noticed someone had tried to break into his home with a crow bar. He even noticed his phone lines had been cut, but when he determined nothing had been stolen he went back to work.

A few hours later his sister, who lives two doors down, noticed three men trying to break into her brother's house. She called police.

Wayne Burch, John Vaughn, and Levar Riley are now under arrest.
