WOODSIDE, Del -- The Delaware State Police say they have arrested a suspect in connection with a series of church and business burglaries in Woodside.

After a thorough investigation, police say Jason Faulkner, 30, of Dover was identified as the suspect responsible for the burglaries beginning on August 3rd through August 23rd. Troopers say they received 14 reports of break-ins to churches and commercial businesses throughout Felton, Magnolia, Dover and Woodside. During the burglaries, police reported that the suspect would remove money and food items from the locations.

At around 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning, Delaware State troopers say they saw a suspicious subject moving around the area of Arby's. The subject was later identified by police as Faulkner; troopers then took him into custody. Faulkner also reportedly had an active warrant in Sussex for escaping Level 4 Probation.

The Delaware State Police say Faulkner has been charged with 11 counts of 3rd degree burglary and two counts of attempted 3rd degree burglary, among other charges. He was arraigned at the Justice of the Peace Court 7 and committed to the Department of Corrections on a $88,000 cash bond.
