  New Castle County Police issue a crime alert: Theft of Package





The New Castle County Police would like to warn residents about the risk of having packages delivered to an empty home.

The holiday season is right around the corner and many residents have started online shopping to beat the shopping mall rush.  Unfortunately, “Package Pirates” are on the look-out for an easy grab.

Last year, the New Castle County Police received a total of 98 complaints regarding the theft of packages. Nearly half of the reports were received in the months of November and December.  Recently, there have been reports of suspicious vehicles following delivery trucks.  We have a few tips to keep “Package Pirates” and Grinches from taking your packages.

CRIME ALERT: PHONE SCAM- IMPERSONATING A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER

New Castle County Police are investigating a phone scam where the caller identifies himself as a law enforcement official and attempts to collect money from the victim for outstanding warrants or fines.

County Police have received reports from victims regarding telephone calls from an individual sometimes identifying themselves as “Officer Sharp” or “Lieutenant Sharp” from the New Castle County Sheriff’s Office.  The caller has asked for money in exchange for clearing an outstanding warrant or fine for missing jury duty.

New Castle County Police have seen this type of incident before and would like to warn the public that a law enforcement agency will not telephone a citizen requesting payment for a fine or ask for such payment over the telephone. We encourage citizens to be alert and aware of dishonest people taking advantage of them. Recognizing a phone scam will help to protect your money as well as your identity. If anyone has been a victim of this telephone scam or wants to inquire about the validity of a telephone call from a law enforcement officer can call the New Castle County Police non-emergency telephone number at (302) 573-2800.

Found - Missing Cat In Neighborhood




Hello,

I live in Brookland Terrace on Ferris Road & my cat just got out of the house for the 1st time ever.

Willow usually will come when she's called.

She's all black, long haired, & has a shorter body then a regular cat. She slipped out of her collar so she will be  without a collar. She's very friendly to people but does not care for other cats.

Could you please forward a message to the entire mailing list to keep an eye out for her?

I can be reached at 302-740-9233.

Thank you,
Melissa

Trees Falling on Utility Lines 300 Block Brookland Ave - Comcast / Delmarva




1st picture is service tech who made a ticket for someone to come back and trim trees. 


Created ticket # CR616713386 for this job.











2nd and 3rd picture is of tech that came back later in day and said Comcast does NOT trim trees. 

He said Comcast pays Delmarva rent each month to use their poles and that tree maintenance is included in that fee. 

And around and around we go . . .

I just hope no kids are hurt while these two companies are playing and dodging their responsibilities.  The liabilities are too great for this foolishness.

So, here you go!
