In disbelief, I at first thought someone was playing a trick on me. It soon became apparent that was not the case. I walked through the parking lot looking for any clues, but to no avail. When I walked back into the store to call Rehoboth Beach Police De- partment, one of my employees, Lester Puckett, walked in the front door and said the state police had a man on a bicycle stopped at the edge of town, with what looked like a toolbox and two drills. We immediately drove there and iden- tified my tools. I would have nev- er seen my tools again if it weren't for Sgt. Ron Hagan catching this individual; I am certain of that. Ron just happened to be patrolling the area and saw this individual on a bicycle and knew he was the same one wanted for a previous offense involving theft. This letter is in deepest appreci- ation to Sgt. Ron Hagan, the Delaware State Police and the Re- hoboth Police Department, who assisted and wrote up the incident report. I am deeply grateful.
