KENT COUNTY, Del.– Delaware State Police say they have arrested two Harrington men in connection with numerous burglaries and thefts of firearms throughout southern and central Kent County.

Police said they began investigating a number of burglaries that were occurring in the Felton, Harrington, Houston, and Marydel areas since early May. Troopers said that in the majority of these crimes, the suspects would break into the victims' unoccupied homes and remove jewelry and firearms before attempting to sell the jewelry at local pawn shops. Twenty-five-year-old Daniel P. Everett and 25-year-old Robert Wright III, both of Harrington, were established as suspects in this investigation through the sales of the jewelry, according to police.

Police said that shortly after two separate burglaries were reported on Thursday, June 5, detectives conducting surveillance in the Felton area were able to locate Everett and Wright as they were leaving a development off of Irish Hill Road. Troopers followed the vehicle to a home on Upper King Road where they made contact with the two as they exited the vehicle. Wright was taken into custody without incident. Police said Everett tried to run into a cornfield, but was quickly taken into custody without further incident.

Both subjects were then transported back to Troop 3 and a search warrant was obtained to search their vehicle. Troopers said they located a .44-caliber revolver in the center console and 17 other firearms in the trunk of the car. All the firearms recovered had just been reported stolen earlier that day, according to police. Through interviews with the suspects, detectives said they were able to locate and recover an additional 15 firearms that were stolen over the course of the month.

Everett was ordered held in Sussex Correctional Center due to outstanding capiases until detectives formally charged him on June 16 with 11 counts of second-degree burglary, 36 counts of theft of a firearm, and numerous counts of theft and criminal mischief. He continues to be held at SCI in lieu of $56,050 cash bond.

Wright was ordered held at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $23,000 cash bond on charges of second-degree burglary, theft of a firearm, as well as numerous other counts of theft and criminal mischief.
