LAUREL, Del. - Police have arrested two men in connection with six burglaries that happened in Delmar and Laurel.

Delaware State Police say on Tuesday, around 2:30 PM, a man was sitting in his Deer Road home in Delmar, when he heard a loud noise. When he investigated, he apparently saw someone standing in his doorway.According to the victim, the suspect turned, ran out of the house, and into a waiting white car. The victim was able to give 911 a description of the car, and license plate number.

Laurel Police reportedly stopped the car at First Stop Convenient Store, where they took 44-year-old Kenneth Williams, of Seaford, and 26-year-old Matthew King Jr., of Harrington, into custody.

A criminal investigation linked the two to at least six burglaries in Laurel, Delmar, Milford, and Salisbury, MD. Police say that Williams and King forced their way into unoccupied homes or businesses and left with cash, jewelry, tools, and several firearms. Some items were apparently pawned at local pawn shops.

Both were charged with a slew of offences, including 2nd and 3rd degree burglary, 2nd degree attempted burglary, and 9 counts of theft of a firearm. Williams is being held at Sussex Correctional Center on $32,750 bond, while King is being held at SCI on $16,000 bond.
