ST. GEORGES, Del. (WBOP/AP)- Delaware State Police say they have arrested a man who left a corrections work crew after a vehicle chase through several towns.
 
Troopers said 18-year-old Mark J. Humbertson Jr. of Clayton left a Central Violation of Probation Center work crew near Collins Beach on Monday afternoon. Authorities said Humbertson broke into a home on Saw Mill Branch Road in Townsend and stole a loaded .380-caliber handgun, then stole a box truck from a second home on the same road.
 
Police said troopers spotted the stolen truck at about 10 p.m. Monday on U.S. 13 in Dover. Troopers deployed stop sticks, which deflated the two front tires, but the truck continued northbound on the highway.
 
Troopers said that when the truck reached the St. Georges Bridge in New Castle County, it struck and heavily damaged two police vehicles before crashing into a guardrail. Humbertson was then taken into custody and the handgun was recovered at the scene, police said. There were no reported injuries as a result of the incident.
 
Humbertson has been charged with escape after conviction, two counts of second-degree burglary, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a firearm by person prohibited, theft of firearm, theft of motor vehicle, two counts of theft under $1,500 and criminal mischief.

After being arraigned on the aforementioned charges, Humbertson was ordered held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on a $49,000 cash bond.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing and police said more charges are expected to be filed against Humbertson.

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.
