LEWES, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a Lewes man in connection with a series of residential burglaries that occurred last summer in the Angola area.
On Wednesday night troopers responded to 43-year-old Gerald Paulley Jr.'s home because he had active capiases on file from Sussex County courts and one on file from the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole. Troopers said that upon their arrival, Paulley ran out of his house and was captured shortly thereafter. He was transported back to Troop 7 in Lewes where he was arrested for resisting arrest and processed for the capiases.
Police said that through further investigation it was determined that Paulley had been involved in eight burglaries that had occurred over the course of the summer. Investigators said he would break into unoccupied homes in the Angola Crest I Mobile Home Park west of Lewes and steal articles such as fishing poles, electronic devices and liquor before fleeing the area undetected.
Paulley was additionally charged with eight counts of second-degree burglary, three counts of third-degree burglary, seven counts of possession of burglary tools, 10 counts of theft, eight counts of second-degree conspiracy and eight counts of criminal mischief. He was ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $15,250 secured bond.
