The Dover Police Department is investigating a pair of commercial burglary incidents that occurred early Saturday morning.  The first incident occurred at approximately 4:40 a.m. at D&D Liquors at 1107 South DuPont Highway when a male and female suspect approach the business.  The female attempted to use a hammer to pry open/break windows but was unsuccessful.  Both suspects fled the area at that time. The second incident occurred at approximately 5:02 a.m. at the Dover Tobacco store located at 1255 South State Street.  Two male suspects broke a window to the store and entered.  Once inside, the suspects stole various tobacco products worth over $1,500.  One male suspect was wearing a coat with a dark colored hooded sweatshirt underneath, mask, black pants with a white stripe, and was carrying a red WAWA bag.  The second suspect was a male wearing dark clothing with black and red sneakers.
