LEWES, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a man accused of breaking into three separate homes in Lewes.

Casey S. Wiedman, 27, of Lewes, was taken into custody Monday night and charged with three counts of second-degree burglary, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, drug dealing (marijuana), three counts of possession of burglary tools, 12 counts of theft of a firearm, three counts of theft, possession of drug paraphernalia and three counts of criminal mischief.

According to police, Wiedman's arrest stemmed from an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of Thursday, May 9, when he was captured on a surveillance camera breaking into one of three homes in the Sand Dune Village on Lewes. Police said that once inside the dwellings, Wiedman ransacked them and removed loose change. According to police, in one of the break-ins Wiedman stole 12 guns and then fled in an unknown direction.

Police said numerous tips from the public assisted detectives in identifying Wiedman as the suspect.

On Monday night, detectives obtained a search warrant of Wiedman's home where they say they recovered the 12 guns, including a .45-caliber handgun he had in his possession during the burglary. Police said the search also led to the seizure of more than 148 grams of marijuana packaged for individual sale, as well as drug paraphernalia.
 
Following his arrest on the aforementioned charges, Wiedman was ordered held on $84,250 secured bail.
 
Detectives said they are continuing their investigation into this and other burglaries that Wiedman may be linked to in the Lewes and Rehoboth area and additional charges are pending.
