SMYRNA, Del.- Police in Smyrna say a suspect attempted to escape from the police station after turning himself in for burglary charges.

According to police, officers began investigating a residential burglary in the 100 block of Lincoln Street on Oct. 22. Officers say the victims allowed an associate to stay at their home and asked him to leave the next morning, as they locked up the house and left for work. Officers say they later noticed a key was missing, and returned to find several items were missing. Police say the items include two shotguns, an XBOX game console, several video games, two external hard drives and about $45.00 in cash.

The Smyrna Police Department says detectives located the stolen electronics, which were sold at an electronics store in Dover.

Police say the suspect, 21-year-old Ezekiel Sullivan, sold the property in Dover. Officers say they obtained an arrest warrant for Sullivan for 2nd-degree burglary, theft of a firearm, theft under $1,500, theft by false pretense and selling stolen property.

According to police, Sullivan voluntarily came to the Smyrna Police Department for an interview and arrest processing on Oct. 24. While in custody, police say Sullivan ran from officers and escaped out the back door. Officers pursued the suspect on foot and apprehended him about a block away.

Police also charged Sullivan with resisting arrest, escape 2nd-degree and trespassing.

Sullivan was processed and arraigned in the Justice of the Peace Court 2 via video phone and committed to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in default of $19,001 cash bail.
