Two charged in connection to Kent Co. vehicle break-ins
Two people are facing charges after police say they were involved in 15 vehicle break-ins in Kent County.
Delaware State Police says beginning on February 2 through March 16, detectives investigated a series of vehicle break-ins that happened in Dover and Camden. Troopers say 15 incidents were reported.
On Friday, authorities say they responded to the 3000 block of Upper King Road, in Dover, for the report of nine vehicles that were broken in to and property was stolen. During this investigation, troopers say they identified two possible suspects as 42-year-old Shawn Barber and 32-year-old Christina Jarman, both of Dover.
According to authorities, they responded to Jarman's Dover residence where Barber was taken into custody without incident. Jarman was apparently unable to be located at this time.
After further investigation, law enforcement reports that they were able to positively link Barber and Jarman to all 15 incidents, as well as a series of similar incident being investigated by the Camden Police Department.
Barber was charged with theft under $1,500 where a victim is 62 years of age (1 count), theft under $1,500 (3 counts), attempted theft under $1,500 (10 counts), criminal trespass third degree (10 counts), and criminal mischief (2 counts). He was then turned over to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Institution in lieu of $8,725 secured bail.
On Monday, police say Jarman turned herself in to Troop 3 on warrants related to this incident. The 32-year-old was also charged with theft under $1,500 where a victim is 62 years of age (1 count), theft under $1,500 (3 counts), attempted theft under $1,500 (10 counts), criminal trespass third degree (10 counts), and criminal mischief (2 counts).
She was later released on $10,250 unsecured bail.
