MILFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police say one of two burglary suspects who crashed while fleeing troopers has been arrested.
 
The troopers were called to the Coach Outlet in Rehoboth Beach at around 4 a.m. Wednesday. Police said a Mercedes Benz SUV sped off from the shopping center and later crashed into a car in Milford. The driver of the other car, a 41-year-old Milford man, was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital where he treated for his injuries and released. Two men fled the SUV on foot, but troopers found 85 Coach purses police said had an estimated worth of $29,000.
 
Police said 39-year-old Timothy A. Hood of Richmond, Va., was arrested at a Valero gas station in Milford later that morning and detectives determined he was also involved in two other burglaries last month at the same shopping center. Troopers said that on Aug. 7, Sunglass Hut was burglarized after the window was shattered and more than 60 pairs of sunglasses valued at approximately $11,600 were stolen. Police said that then on Aug. 10, Michael Kors Outlet was burglarized after a window was shattered and 85 purses valued at more than $27,000 were removed. 

Hood is charged with three counts of third-degree burglary, three counts of possession of burglar tools, three counts of theft greater than $1,500, disregarding a police officer's signal, second-degree conspiracy, criminal impersonation, second-degree reckless endangering, resisting arrest, three counts of criminal mischief, second-degree vehicular assault and numerous traffic-related charges. He was ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on $75,000 cash bail.

Police are still looking for a second suspect described as a black male who was wearing a brown or gray hooded sweatshirt with black pants.
