Residents of Wilmington's Sunset Park neighborhood woke up Sunday to find some of their personal property vandalized. They said crime is a growing concern. Vandals spray-painted the sides of cars and stole lanterns from front yards. One woman had two bikes stolen. She said both bikes were locked up before she went to bed, but the locks were cut and the bikes missing in the morning. Neighbors said this is not the first time they have seen theft and vandalism in their neighborhood. Sunset Park resident, Chris Paladino said, "Bikes aren't cheap, we are in hard times, I don't have the money to keep shelling out for a bike, and this poor kid, that's the only thing he enjoys in life, is his bicycle." The neighbors filed reports with the Wilmington Police Department, but officers said crimes like these are hard to solve.
