GEORGETOWN, Del. - The Delaware State Police have arrested three people in connection with several thefts from vehicles in the Georgetown, Del. area.

According to police, troopers began their investigation on Friday after car break-ins were reported from the Shiloh Church Road, Asketum Branch Road, and Homestead Road areas, west of Georgetown. In most of the incidents, police said the vehicles were left unlocked and the suspects removed various items of cash, credit cards, and personal belongings before fleeing the area.

Police said some of the victim's credit cards were used at various stores in the Georgetown area.

The car was found Saturday night driving on Discount Land Road near Laurel and police arrested George L. Dunn, 24 of Georgetown, Valerie E. Lohr, 25 of Millsboro, and Travis M. Cannon, 26 of Millsboro.

Police said Cannon, Dunn, and Lohr were all charged with identity theft, two counts of third-degree burglary, second-degree conspiracy, three counts of unlawful use of a credit card, three counts of theft under $1500, criminal mischief, and third-degree criminal trespassing. Lohr was also charged with second-degree forgery. Cannon was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $12,150 secured bond. Dunn was committed on $8,851 secured bond. Lohr was committed on $7,150 secured bond.

Troopers said they are continuing their investigation into these incidents as well as numerous others that were committed in the Bridgeville Greenwood and Delmar areas.  Additional charges may be forthcoming.
