OCEAN VIEW, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating the vandalism of 26 mobile homes in the Ocean View area.

Troopers said the incident took place sometime between 10 a.m. Tuesday and 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Bayshore Mobile Home Park. According to police, a suspect or suspects shattered glass doors and windows and broke into the homes, however nothing was reported missing as of Wednesday afternoon. 

The damage is estimated at more than $9,000 at the 26 homes. Troopers say the homes were unoccupied at the time and are also considered "seasonal" homes.

WBOC spoke with neighbors who say it makes them nervous. 


"It bothers me, I mean it's generally a quiet area, nobody bothers us and everybody tends to their own business," Kim Bink said. "Somebody knows that nobody's there."


Police said year round neighbors can help keep an eye on homes when the seasonal people are gone.


If anyone has any information as to the identity of the suspect(s) involved, they are asked to contact Detective J. Rowley at (302) 856-5850, ext. 223. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
