Kenneth Sutton, ap- proximately 13 businesses have been burglarized since early No- vember. All of the break-ins were late at night; in all cases, cash was stolen, he said. Property damage was minor with basically broken windows and doors. "In these particular cases, the person was only looking for cash, but there are a lot of burglaries where the suspects will take any- thing they can get their hands on," said Sutton. He said business owners and managers should take precautions to prevent becoming victims of burglaries during the holiday season. "When they close up for the evening, it's very important for them to utilize their safes and make sure they are locked," he said. "They should leave the cash register drawers in an open posi- tion and not leave any money lay- ing around. It's also important to remember that once someone breaks into a place and steals money, they're going to go back." Police warn of phone solicitations Delaware State Police have re- cently received reports to Sussex County troops that an organiza- tion is making phone solicitations on behalf of state troopers, claim- ing funds will be used for a safety belt campaign or for families of slain officers.

The only fundrais- ing operation DSTA engages in is its ongoing program with Smokey Mountain Secrets jams and jellies sales, or ad sales to businesses in- terested in promoting their prod- ucts in the DSTA magazine. DS- TA is not affiliated with the Fra- ternal Order of Police. Those who want to confirm that their pur- chases indeed support state troop- ers may call DSTA at 800-660- 3120 or 302-736-9958. l)elaxare Slate Police l)rix in Tnlcr tile Influence Re )0rl Cape board to discuss FY 99 budget Dec. 17 The Cape Heniopen School Dis- trict Board of Education will dis- cuss the FY 99 budget during its Thursday, Dec. 17 meeting.
