CAMDEN, Del.- Delaware State Police say three people are facing burglary and theft charges following allegations that they broke into a home in Camden-Wyoming and stole copper wire and piping. 

Police said the incident happened shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday when troopers were called to 64 Peridot Place for a reported burglary in progress.

According to investigators, it was reported that a woman operating a black Dodge Neon dropped off two men at the home, who went inside. 

Police said that when arriving troopers performed a search of the interior of the home, two suspects, identified as 30-year-old Brian K. Sandoz and William M. Shumate III, both of Camden-Wyoming, were located and detained in the basement of the foreclosed home.

Sandoz and Shumate were found to be in the possession of burglary tools and had cut the majority of the copper wire and piping from the basement ceiling, according to police. Troopers said that during the investigation, 40-year-old Monica D. Shumate, also of Camden-Wyoming, was found to be the woman who had driven them the two men to the property. She was later taken into custody at a home on Mud Mill Road in Camden-Wyoming.

Police said all three people are suspects in similar burglaries across Kent and Sussex counties and future charges are pending.

Brian Sandoz was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, possession of burglar tools, felony theft, felony criminal mischief and felony conspiracy. Troopers said Sandoz was also wanted in connection with previous investigations involving multiple felony thefts, forgeries and conspiracy which occurred on May 18, 2015, and another investigation where he was wanted for identity theft and felony theft that occurred on June 5, 2015.  He was ordered held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in default of $13,500 cash bond.
