HARTLY, Del.- Delaware State Police are seeking two suspects wanted for stealing metal from a scrap yard in Hartly.

Police say that on Aug. 15 at around 1:15 a.m., troopers responded to a reported trespassing at Cannon's Salvage Yard located on Hartly Road. 

According to police, as troopers arrived at the scene they spotted a white male suspect inside the fenced area attempting to remove scrap metal. Police say the suspect ran away when approached by the troopers.  A foot pursuit ensued and troopers observed the suspect in the company of a second unidentified white male suspect fleeing into a cornfield.  Troopers were unable to locate either suspect.

Police say that an investigation into the incident lead police to identify one of the fleeing suspects as 44-year-old Kevin E. Stevens, with a last known address of North Union Street in Wilmington. Steven's personal vehicle was located in close vicinity of the crime scene.  A search warrant was obtained and items were recovered in the vehicle directly linking Stevens to the crime, according to police.

In addition to Stevens, the Delaware State Detectives are seeking a second suspect, who is described as a white male, approximately 5-foot-8 to 6-foot-1, 170-190 pounds, brown hair and brown eyes. 

Arrest warrants are presently on file for Stevens charging him with burglary, trespass and theft. 

Anyone with knowledge of Stevens' whereabouts or information related to this incident is asked to contact Delaware State Police at (302) 697-2106, ext 306 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
