Most TV and movies show burglaries happening at night but in fact, most burglaries take place in the afternoon. So, while you’re enjoying Wilmington’s burgeoning restaurant scene on Market Street, Union Street, and Trolley Square or the Delaware Art Museum, The Grand Opera House or Live Nation at The Queen, bad guys may be helping themselves.
