Somebody knows who this is…

Good Afternoon,

We have seen an uptick in car break-ins in City parks over the last month where purses are being taken. The unknown subjects are taking valuables that are being left in plain sight. Can you please help us identify the individual below who may be related to these car break-ins.

We ask that if you visit parks, shopping centers, or even the mall, please place all valuables out of sight. A few minutes could save you days/hours of inconvenience trying to cancel credit cards, calling banks, and even having to go to the DMV to replace a license.

If anyone has information about the female pictured below we ask that you please use our Tip 411 app or call WPD at 910-343-3609.

Just a heads up- on street parking is free today. DO NOT PAY THE METERS. Unfortunately Park Wilmington doesn’t feel it prudent to program them properly to display that meters are free today like they’ve done for years. Greed at its finest...

Not done yet, Pour House owner will continue fight to keep mural

Why hasn’t the city stepped up to help a business that has been shuttered for almost seven months?! Last time I checked, allowing restaurants to assemble tables and chairs up and down the sidewalk and out in the streets isn’t historical. Do they only care about restaurants and retail during these difficult times? Step up your game mayor Saffo and the rest of the funky bunch on city council or we will all vote you out the first chance we get.

Last month the City of Wilmington’s Historic Preservation Committee voted to deny a request that would have allowed a mural painted on the stairwell wall leading to a local bar, the Pour House, claiming the artwork was a violation of city code and is considered a sign.

Heads up folks. Stay far, far away from this place!

WATCH OUT OGDEN AND SURROUNDING AREA Just had two Individuals one male and one female try and scan me by selling fake jewelry and gold New Hanover Deputies got out with them but unknown what happened but they have been doing this for a while now so be careful
If anyone has any information, our sign was stolen 2 days ago by two individuals in a silver coupe at 9:30pm. Please DM The Black Cat Shoppe page
I need to know the name of this man. He is aggressively harassing the workers of The Black Cat Shoppe, and the police can do nothing without a name. His street name is DC. That’s all I know, besides the fact he is a regular busker downtown.
Please don't contribute to this he**in addicts death by giving him money. His nickname is Bando and he panhandles at intersection of Eastwood & Market St from about 2pm until ? He is also violent if confronted.
Bicycle stolen. My bicycle was stolen last night around 6:30p from 311 N 2nd street. Police report has been filed. Please message me if you see a mint Green huffy cruiser with a bell on the left handlebar. Thank you!
Anyone live in the N5th neighborhood? Heard a gunshot today, tonight had someone knocking at the door saying they live in a house near the Thelma L Bull Bridge on 5th in a house without water or power and wa begging for money. Check your porches and keep things cleared!
Person last seen riding it is named Vince Galbreith outside of the Husk. He claims he skated and left it sitting by a tree in the outdoor seating area. From what I've heard, could be stolen by him but no one knows if the Husk has cameras outside. He was skating down the sidewalk, I went inside for a drink, came out and him and my board were both gone. If anyone sees anything please reach out! It was a gift for my birthday and has a lot of sentimental value to me. TIA
Found dog downtown on 11th street.
Joshua Strand Post the dog here
This do*****ag just dine and dashed on me at AB. Red beard. After watching the video he straight up runs with his backpack when I bring him the bill. Had a book bag full of disc golf gear.
Hey guys, can y’all take a second to read and share my story? Thank you ♥️
