The Dover Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit is investigating a burglary at Spence’s Bazaar at 550 South New Street that occurred Monday night at approximately 11:45PM.  The crime occurred when three juvenile black males shattered the door glass to an entrance on the south side of the building.  Once inside, the suspects approached a glass case of a jewelry vendor and shattered the case with an unknown object.  The suspects removed several imitation yellow gold jewelery items, mostly men’s necklaces and bracelets.  During the burglary, the suspects first attempted to make entry by breaking a window leading into the office area and attempted to break another glass door as well, but were unsuccessful.  The suspects also damaged phone lines outside of the office area in an attempt to disable the alarm system.  The juveniles are estimated to be young teens.  Surveillance video of the incident can be viewed below.  Anyone with any information is asked to call 302-736-7111.  Callers may remain anonymous. Tips can also be submitted to law enforcement through tip lines maintained by Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or on-line at www.tipsubmit.com.
