Six Dellwood businesses looted

DELLWOOD, Mo. – The mayor of Dellwood says it's "very disappointing" vandals looted again Sunday night.

Mayor Reggie Jones says six businesses were looted Sunday night: Papa John's, Rehoboth Pharmacy, Dellwood Market, Fashion R, O'Reilly Auto Parts, and a Walgreens window was busted.

Dellwood Market was vandalized and looted after protesters marched toward police throwing Molotov cocktails. Jones says after officers threw tear gas to disperse the crowd, the group marched past Ferguson city limits into Dellwood.

Jones says after a small fire was put out at the market, the SWAT team assessed the situation, and left. He says it was then that 20 to 30 looters shot the locks off the market and made their way inside the store.

He says he's in favor of protesting, but believes there's another group of people who are focused on looting, and not protesting.

Last week, 16 businesses in Dellwood were looted during rioting in Ferguson. Those businesses have all reopened.

The continued looting is one of the reasons why Gov. Jay Nixon has ordered the Missouri National Guard to Ferguson. A curfew has been in place within Ferguson city limits for the last two nights, but it has done little to quell the violent protesters.
