The Delaware State Police are investigating a theft from a vehicle that occurred yesterday afternoon in a bank parking lot in Wilmington.

On April 29, 2024, at approximately 2:33 p.m., troopers responded to a report of a theft from a vehicle in the parking lot of the Bank of America located at 5215 Concord Pike, Wilmington. The investigation revealed two unknown male suspects distracted the victim by falsely claiming her car’s tire was on fire as she was driving out of the bank’s parking lot.
