GREENWOOD, Del. – Two men are behind bars in Sussex County after police say they linked them to a string of burglaries in the Greenwood area.

According to Delaware State Police, Jason Root, 30, of Greenwood, and Kasey Dolly, 27, of Harrington, were identified when a neighbor of one of the victims recognized a car speeding away from the burglarized house.

Police said that burglary happened Aug. 17 on the 13000 block of Adamsville Road in Greenwood. The victim told responding officers someone had broken in through the glass window next to the door, removed cash and a cup from the kitchen counter and then fled.

Detectives said they were able to link Root and Dolly to four other burglaries in the area, all of which occurred during daytime hours when no one was home. Police said that in most cases televisions and cash were stolen. Any electronics would then be sold for cash at local pawn shops or used in exchange for illegal drugs, according to police.

Dolly and Root were arrested Friday and charged with multiple counts of burglary, theft, conspiracy and criminal mischief. Police said they were committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $49,300 (Dolly) and $37,800 (Root) bond.
