Suspects arrested for burglary spree in Delaware

MILFORD, Del.– Delaware State police have arrested a couple responsible for a burglary spree in Milford and Lewes.

On Tuesday, police say they took medication and cash from Professionals Services. Police later found the suspects, after conducting a traffic stop. Szambelak lead police on a brief foot chase before being arrested.
