WILMINGTON, Del. - New Castle Police say a woman chased down a burglar she caught carrying her property out of her house, and got her stuff back. It happened Tuesday morning in a home on Pennsylvania Avenue in Manor Park.
Police said the woman told the man to drop her property, but he said "no" and rode off on a bike. Police said the woman followed in her car, bumping the bike till the suspect had to drop the stolen stuff to keep his balance.
The woman picked up her things, drove home and called 911. A police dog tracked the suspect's scent to New Jersey Avenue, but lost the scent there.
