Packages, Decor Disappear in New Hanover Thefts

GRINCH HITS NEW HANOVER – A holiday Grinch, who is seen by a video surveillance camera taking items from at least one residence in New Hanover Township’s Hanover Pointe housing community off Route 663 at Lomara Drive, may be responsible for others too, authorities believe. The township police department, in a Wednesday (Dec. 2, 2020) post on its Facebook page, said it was “investigating multiple thefts of packages and holiday decor” at Hanover Pointe. A photo still (at top) taken from the video uploaded to Facebook shows a suspect who is described by police as “a white male possibly (in his) early to mid-’20s, operating a white Ford F-250 pickup truck.” The department hopes anyone with information on the thefts will call it at 610-327-1150.
