HARRINGTON, Del. - Delaware State Police arrested a Felton man Friday evening after a burglary investigation led to a methamphetamine operation.
 
Police say the investigation began when a 40-year-old victim reported a burglary in his detached garage in Harrington. The victim told police he heard noises around 5:45 am that morning from the garage. He said he saw his brother-in-law, Robert B. McCullough, 35 of Felton, walking away with a gas can and tool box. Police say the victim tried to contact his brother-in-law but said he was unsuccessful.
