When I was in law enforcement, a thief was a thief. Over the course of the the last several years, I have noticed a problematic trend with former law enforcement officers stealing money from people they work with, from people who know and trust them and count them as friends.
Making things worse, local authorities don’t seem to be willing to do anything about it.
My question is this, local Wilmington business owner: How many of you have had a person steal from you, only to be told by law enforcement or the district attorney’s office that it’s a civil case and you’ll have to sue the person who stole from you?
This is not an excuse to sit around complaining, but there are questions I sincerely want to discuss with other local business owners.
How many of you have been stolen from and found the police or DA unwilling to help?
How much was stolen from you?
What were you told by law enforcement or the district attorney’s office?
I’m trying to find out how much of a problem this is. If you’ve experienced the same issue as other people I’ve talked to, please contact me.
