CLAYMONT, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Delaware State Police have charged a Claymont man with the theft of cash from a safe at a Claymont church.

Police announced earlier this week that the earnings from last week's carnival at Holy Rosary Church on Philadelphia Pike were placed in the church's safe, but when a volunteer opened the safe on Saturday afternoon, $18,000 of that money was gone.

On Thursday, police announced that two church members told police on Wednesday that they believed their 25-year-old son, Jeffrey R. Maichle, was involved. Police said troopers found most of the money when they searched the home where Maichle lives with his parents. They also found drug paraphernalia during the search, police said.

According to police, troopers determined that Maichle used his parents' keys to enter both the church and the safe.

Maichle was charged with third-degree burglary, theft of $1,500 or greater and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was ordered held on $6,200 secured bail.
