This week’s “Crime of the Week” focuses on an Attempted Burglary which took place in Delaware County.
On November 5, 2017, at 5:14am, a panel van pulled into the rear of Norton Sporting Goods located at 100 Norton Road, Waldo, Ohio, in Delaware County. Two males exited the vehicle and used criminal tools in an attempt to pry open the doors of the business. After an unsuccessful attempt to gain entry into the building, the suspects left the scene and traveled north on Route 423 towards Marion County. The suspect vehicle is a white Ford van with a thirty-day tag. The vehicle has a large steel bumper and what appears to be a logo on the upper rear side of the van. Also, the third brake light above the rear windows is burned out. Surveillance photos of the suspects may be viewed below:
