Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del. - After 52 firearms and a large quantity of ammunition was stolen from a Seaford gun store, police have one suspect in custody.

The investigation revealed Handy, along with Daniel L. Cornish, Donald R. White, and Devlyne King forced their way into the business through a window.  Once inside, the suspects removed 17 long rifles, 35 handguns, and a large quantity of ammunition.  The suspects then fled the scene after the shop owner confronted them once he was alerted to the store by the alarm system.
