REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - A Millsboro man has been arrested for allegedly stealing money from two people's purses at a Rehoboth Beach arcade.

Police say 32-year-old Eian Stradley was charged Wednesday after two reports of wallets stolen while the victims were inside the South Beach Arcade located on the boardwalk in the area of Delaware Avenue. 

The first theft was reported around 3:45 Monday. Officers worked with the employees of the arcade to get surveillance video, which police say showed a man, later identified as Stradley, remove the victim's wallet from her purse while she was inside a photo booth. The wallet contained identification, credit cards and an undisclosed amount of cash.

The second theft was reported around 4:40 p.m. Wednesday. Officers recognized the suspect as the same man caught on camera on Monday. Police searched the area for the suspect and found him inside the Royal Farms on Rehoboth Avenue, officers said.

Stradley was arrested and charged with one count of theft under $1,500 and one count of theft of lost or mislaid property under $1,500. Both charges are class A misdemeanors.  The money stolen in these cases totaled less than $500. 

Stradley was released on $1,000 unsecured bail.
