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.
