A wanted woman was arrested after troopers say the woman and her brother were involved in numerous Delaware burglaries.
Delaware State Police say on Tuesday, 32-year-old George Thomas III was arrested in Queen Anne's County in connection with multiple burglaries that happened in Kent County, DE. Troopers say Thomas and his sister, 25-year-old Destiny Thomas, were involved in multiple burglaries that happened in the Hartly, Clayton, and Dover areas. Authorities say the Troop 3 Property Crimes Unit investigation began when the suspects entered a Hartly residence, on Arthursville Road, and removed metal parts from a 1965 Rambler American Model 235. The suspects then fled the scene.
According to the report, on June 10, troopers responded to Sudlersville Road where the suspects entered the Clayton residence through a window and removed two shotguns and a television. Law enforcement reports that on June 23, troopers responded to Central Church Road where the suspects forced entry through a back door and stole numerous electronics, power tools and jewelry before fleeing the scene in Dover.
