UPDATE: One Of Two Suspects Arrested In DE Outlet Burglary

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - A new development in the case of Wednesday's early morning burglary of a Coach Outlet in Rehoboth. Delaware State Police say one of the two suspects reportedly involved has been arrested.

According to reports, around 11:00 AM Wednesday morning, Troopers received a call for a suspicious person in Kent County. Police say they found the suspect, later identified as 39-year-old Timothy Hood of Richmond, VA, inside a Valero gas station in Milford and took him into custody.

Authorities say an investigation revealed Hood was involved in two other burglaries in the same shopping center as the Coach Outlet. Police say, on August 7th, the Sunglass Hunt was reportedly burglarized after a window was shattered. A reported 60 pair of sunglasses were taken, valued at around $11,600. Police say on August 10th the Michael Kors Outlet was allegedly burglarized, again after a window was shattered. Reports say 85 purses, valued at over $27,000.00, were stolen.

You'll recall, the investigation began after Troopers were called to the Coach Outlet in Rehoboth Beach early Wednesday. Police say a Mercedes Benz SUV sped off from the shopping center before crashing into a car in Milford a little while later. The two men who were inside the SUV fled on foot, but troopers found 85 Coach purses police say are worth $29,000.

The driver of the other car was treated and released.

Hood was charged with three counts of burglary in the 3rd degree, three counts of theft greater than $1,500, resisting arrest, 2nd degree vehicular assault, and many others. He was committed to SCI and is being held on $75,000 cash bail.

Anyone with any information on the remaining suspects, are asked to contact Detective D. Cathell at 302-856-5850 ext. 214 or the Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
