WILMINGTON — The following report is generated from incident reports provided by the Wilmington Police Department. All those arrested are presumed innocent until possibly found guilty in court. Charges may be dropped or changed in court.

Wilmington police recently processed the following reports:

• At 2:18 p.m. on Oct. 8, a 21-year-old male reported his laptop was stolen from his vehicle when it was parked at the 700 block of Rombach Avenue.

• At 4:16 p.m. on Oct. 8, a 22-year-old male reported some rummaged through his vehicle at the 800 block of East Columbus Street and stole some music CDs and a fire department knife. He advised the vehicle was left unlocked.
