FRANKFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a Frankford man following an investigation into a series of residential burglaries in which jewelry and firearms were stolen.

William J. Tingle II, 24, faces a total of 34 charges including second-degree burglary, theft, theft of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a person prohibited, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, second-degree conspiracy, possession of burglar tools, criminal mischief, theft by false pretense and falsifying business records.

Troopers said Tingle's arrest was the result of a month-long investigation into the burglaries that occurred in mid-August at eight homes in the Dagsboro, Frankford and Selbyville area. According to police, Tingle would break into the unoccupied homes and once inside would remove jewelry and firearms, including a handgun and shotgun.
