WOODSIDE, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for two suspects wanted for robbing a road flagger near Polytech High School in Woodside.
 
The incident reportedly occurred shortly after 10 a.m. Monday in the area of Walnut Shade Road as a 21-year-old man was working as a flagger during road work. Authorities said that is when the flagger was approached by two unknown male suspects who required an escort to go through the construction zone.

The suspects were described as follows:
 
  • Black male, 18-23 years of age, approximately 6-foot-tall, thin build, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and facial hair.
  • Black male, 18-23 years of age, approximately 5-foot-8, thin build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and facial hair.

      'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

      Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs.

      Every morning during crabbing season, you can see watermen gathering up their pots, collecting their catch, and putting the pots back in the water. What you cannot see is the problem: pots that have had their lines severed sit on the bay's bottom, sometimes never seen again, along with the crabs inside them.
