HARRINGTON, Del.- Delaware State Police arrested a Harrington couple after an investigation revealed they committed a robbery and some burglaries.

Police arrested Jordan McGowan, 29, and Nora A. Laughman, 29, both of Harrington, on Thursday July 21.

Around 2:30 a.m., troopers responded to the Harrington Moose Lodge parking lot for a report of suspicious subjects.  Upon making contact with the couple, the trooper was aware they had been involved in an earlier report of a burglary and theft of a firearm from a home in the 15000 block of South DuPont Highway.  The boyfriend and girlfriend duo were taken into custody without incident and transported back to Troop 3 in Camden.
 
Police say further investigation revealed the couple committed a burglary to Lake Forest High School and removed various power tools before pawning them off at area pawn shops.  Police say they also committed a robbery at the Shell Gas station located in Hockessin, where McGowan entered the store and demanded cash from the clerk. Police say McGowan got away with cash and got into a car driven by Laughman.
 
Jordan McGowan and Nora Laughman were both charged with 2nd-degree robbery, 2nd-degree burglary, 3rd-degree burglary, three counts of conspiracy 2nd, two counts of theft under $1,500, and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Laughman was additionally charged with four counts of theft by false pretense, four counts of falsifying business documents, and four counts of selling stolen property.  

They were both arraigned at JP2 and committed to the Delaware Department of Corrections in lieu of $26,100 secured and $37,100 secured, respectively.
