Many Dellwood business owners prepared for the worst last night, by closing their stores early and boarding up their property.

Many Businesses were boarded up or closed by 7:00 yesterday evening.

Mayor Reggie Johnson says at least 20 businesses have been vandalized so far, including the Dellwood Market. Johnson said he expected some of the crime to spill over into Dellwood.

"Police line pressure is so aggressive from Canfield, it was almost inevitable they were going to come to Dellwood because we're the next town over," Mayor Johnson said.

He went on to say he is in close contact with his lieutenant and he's going to keep the community updated on any new developments in the area.
