Police are asking for the public’s help identifying five people suspected of burglarizing a home east of Newark.

The incident happened Wednesday on Old Harmony Road, according to Master Cpl. Michel Eckerd, a spokesman for the New Castle County Police Department.

The five people – four men and one woman – attempted to gain entry into the same residence numerous times throughout the day, Eckerd said.

The burglars wore masks during the break-in, but police were able to find surveillance footage showing them with their masks off.

Anyone who can identify the suspects should contact Detective Thomas Bruhn at 302-395-8120 or Thomas.Bruhn@newcastlede.gov or call the New Castle County Police non-emergency number at 302-573-2800
