Delaware State Police last week arrested a man for allegedly burglarizing a Habitat for Humanity construction trailer Aug. 28 as it was parked at 11035 Church Rd. in Seaford.

 

Authorities said the construction manager of the Sussex County Habitat for Humanity trailer, which was used to store equipment for the organization, called 911 to report someone had cut the locks off the doors and removed power tools stored inside.

 

An investigation allegedly revealed that Larry Milburn Jr., 47, attempted the same morning to sell some of the stolen tools to a man who owns a nearby welding business.

 

Troopers were able to locate Milburn on Thursday and took him into custody without incident.

 

He was charged with third-degree burglary, theft and criminal mischief.

Police said Milburn was also charged in connection with three other burglaries that took place in the Seaford and Laurel areas.

He was jailed at the Sussex Correctional Institution on $6,500 secured bond.
