New Castle County police today reported the arrest of 19-year-old Bear resident Thomas Lowe in connection with numerous burglaries and related crimes in county neighborhoods.
In the first two weeks of August, county officers responded to 10 burglaries and a trespassing complaint involving thefts from motor vehicles, according to Officer First Class JP Piser, public information officer.
As they recovered evidence and investigated, he said, officers linked the crimes and developed Lowe as a suspect. Officers executed a search warrant at his home in the 700 block of Seymour Road, they found evidence that further bolstered the case and warrants were obtained for Lowe's arrest, Piser said.
Members of the Mobile Enforcement Team found and arrested him Tuesday, he said.
He is charged in four incidents in the Murray Manor neighborhood, two in Grendon Farms, two in Elmwood and one each in Penndrew Manor, Heritage Farm and Eastburn Acres.
Lowe was charged with 10 counts of third-degree burglary, four counts of felony theft, seven counts of misdemeanor theft, misdemeanor trespassing and unlawful use of a credit card.
He was arraigned and committed to Young Correctional Institution in Wilmington after failing to post $44,001 secured bail.
