HARRINGTON, Del.- A 19-year-old Harrington man is facing multiple charges following accusations that he stole firearms and a TV during a burglary that occurred back in fall.

Theodore Shields was arrested Thursday by Harrington police and charged with five counts of theft of a firearm, second-degree degree, second-degree conspiracy, criminal mischief under $1,500 and theft under $1,500.

According to police, Shields' arrest stemmed from an incident that occurred in October when officers responded to a burglary complaint on Meadow Wood Lane. When officers arrived they determined that someone entered the home by breaking a window and while inside the removed five firearms and a TV. 

The case was turned over to departmental detectives who ultimately identified Shields as the suspect.

Following Shields' arrest on the aforementioned charges, he was released on $12,000 unsecured bond.
