GEORGETOWN, Del.-  Delaware State Police have arrested an Ellendale man in connection with two separate burglaries in Sussex County.

Troopers said they were following up on an investigation of a home burglary on the 20000 block of Gravel Hill Road in Georgetown on Monday. According to police, that is when 40-year-old Tyrone J. Morris was identified as a possible suspect.

Later that day, troopers located Morris driving near Lewes and conducted a traffic stop. Troopers said they found two small caliber handguns in the car, which Morris is legally prohibited from possessing.

Police said they also recovered stolen items including jewelry, electronics and a shotgun. Detectives also obtained a search warrant for the suspect's home where they said they found other items reported stolen from a burglary committed earlier that day on the 28000 block of Johnson Road in Millsboro.

Morris is facing several charges including three counts of possessing a firearm by a prohibited person, two counts of burglary and theft of a firearm. He is being held on $65,400 cash bond.

Troopers say the investigation is ongoing into other burglaries in the area and more charges could be filed.
