Thieves Target Businesses in Wilmington

JUNE 5, 2006 -- In recent weeks businesses in the Sea Gate area have been the target of thieves.

Business owners are saying they have had enough.

Four businesses ranging from a bingo parlor to a bar have all been burglarized.

One man noticed his storage unit had been broken into early Monday morning.

When he opened the unit, he realized a thief had made off with some golf clubs and a pressure washer.

The owner estimates the stolen items are worth close to 4,000 dollars.

A bar in the area called Chucky D's was also targeted.

Investigators are hoping a surveillance camera at a neighboring business, Blown Rite Installation, will led them to the thief.
