Salisbury Spree of Daytime Burglaries


SALISBURY, Md.- Deputies from the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said four men broke into the home of an 89-year-old Salisbury woman.

Police say the suspects stuffed a duffel bag full of the woman's jewelry before getting away.

Stella Wade, of Salisbury, lives on the same street and said she can't believe it happened just steps away from her home.

"I've never had any problems in all the years living here," said Wade.

Six homes were hit, all within this past week.

But the suspects took the home invasion of the elderly woman even further.

Police say the woman was tied up and placed underneath a table, when the thieves ran out of home with $75,000 worth of jewelry.

The 89-year-old victim was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, where she was in stable condition.

Meanwhile, wade says she is doing what she can to keep thieves out her house.

"I try to make sure all my doors are kept locked," Wade said. "I never open my windows, so they stay locked."

Detectives with the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation have arrested four suspects and recovered every piece of stolen jewelry.

Although, Wade says she feels better knowing that those thieves were locked-up, she will not stop locking her doors.

"I feel safe when it's locked," Wade said.
