DOVER, Del.- Dover Police arrested a Felton man twice within a few hours after after they say he broke into different cars.

Around 7 a.m. on Friday, police responded to reports of a man breaking into cars in the parking lot of Bayhealth Kent General. Police say the suspect left his wallet and ID in one of the cars, and police were able to identify him as 28-year-old Joseph Graden. 

Police say Graden also damaged the exterior of the vehicle while breaking into it. He was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and 2nd-degree criminal trespass.  Graden was later released by Justice of the Peace Court 7 on an unsecured bond after being arraigned.

Around 10:30 a.m, shortly after being arraigned, an employee of the Dover Police Department found Graden rummaging through his vehicle, which was parked directly in front of the station. The employee immediately notified officers in the building, who then ran to the vehicle.  

Police say Graden tried to run away was captured a short time later by Dover Police officers.  Police say Graden continued to struggle with officers once captured, also throwing a bracelet he stole from the vehicle he broke into. 

Police say Graden caused damage to the glove compartment, used a coat hanger to damage the center console lock, and ripped insulation from the back seat.  Police say Graden attempted to steal other items inside the vehicle, including the bracelet he threw as officers contacted him.  

Graden was committed to JTVCC on $2500 secured bond. He is charged with theft under $1,500, resisting arrest, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, and 2nd-degree criminal trespass.
