SEAFORD, Del.- The Delaware State Police Troop 4 Criminal Investigations Unit has arrested and charged a Seaford man, and is searching for three others, in connection with the Wednesday night burglary of a local gun shop.

According to police, Kevin Handy Jr., 22, of Seaford was arrested Thursday, after detectives gathered information that he was involved in the burglary of Delmarva Shooting Supply, located at 8578 Hearns Pond Road in Seaford. 

The investigation revealed Handy, along with Daniel L. Cornish, 21, Donald R. White, 19, and Devlyne King, 19, forced their way into the business through a window.  Once inside, police said the suspects removed 17 long rifles, 35 handguns and a large quantity of ammunition.  According to police, the suspects then fled the scene after the shop owner confronted them once he was alerted to the store by the alarm system.

Through further investigation and investigative leads, detectives were able to connect Handy, Cornish, White and King to the burglary and theft of firearms.

Troopers were able to locate Handy while he was traveling as a passenger in a vehicle in Seaford.  Police said Handy was taken into custody without incident and transported back to Troop 4.  Upon searching the car, detectives located two handguns that were reported stolen from the gun shop.  Police said a search warrant was also executed at the residence where Daniel Cornish and Donald White reside in Seaford.  Detectives were able to locate a lower receiver assembly from a rifle, connected to the burglary. 

Kevin Handy was charged with Burglary 2nd, 53 counts of Theft of a Firearm, Conspiracy 2nd, and Criminal Mischief.  He was arraigned at JP3 and committed to SCI on $141,500.00 Cash Bond.

Troopers continue to actively search for Cornish, White, and King. If observed call 911 immediately.

If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Daniel Cornish, Donald White, or Devlyne King, they are asked to contact Detective Mark Doughty at (302) 856-5850 ext. 206.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
