MARDELA SPRINGS, Md.– Detectives with the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation have arrested a suspect in connection with a string of residential daytime burglaries in Wicomico County.

Twenty-nine-year-old Lucas Eugene Stone, of Mardela Springs, was taken into custody Friday in connection with the burglaries of homes on Athol Road, Riggin Road, Porter Mill Road, and the Taylors Trail area.

On Sept. 30, the Wicomico Sheriff's Office and the Maryland State Police began to take reports of the residential daytime burglaries. The cases were assigned to the WBI.

Officials said many tips and pieces of information came to the WBI.  Detectives compiled the data and came up with a vehicle that appeared to be related to the burglaries.

Detectives said they also knew the property was being sold but had a false name listed for the person selling the stolen property. Detectives put the information they had gathered out to local law enforcement.

On Friday afternoon, deputies from the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office stopped a suspect, identified as Stone.  Detectives from the WBI responded and took charge of the stop and continued the investigation, officials said.

Detectives said they were able to link Stone to the five burglaries and recovered property from several of the burglaries, which will be released to the owners. Authorities said Stone is also wanted on three outstanding warrants, one from Frederick County and two from Montgomery County.

Stone was charged with burglary, theft and firearm possession with a felony. He is being held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.

Anyone with additional information is asked to call the WBI at (410) 548-4898 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
