A 19-year-old Harrington man was arrested on Dec. 6 after his alleged involvement in two burglaries at a local church.
During the first week of December, the Harrington Police Department received numerous complaints about burglaries that occurred at the Calvary Wesleyan Church in the 200 block of Delaware Ave., said Harrington Police Department spokesman Lt. Earl Brode.
During an investigation, officers determined that an unknown suspect entered the building on two separate occasions, taking lap top computers, Brode said.
In response to the burglaries, a motion-activated camera was placed in the area, allowing officers to capture a photo of the suspect, later identified as 19-year-old George Curtis, Brode said.
The Harrington Police Department obtained a warrant for Curtis’ arrest and took him into custody on Dec. 6.
Curtis was charged with two counts of third-degree burglary and two counts of theft $1,500 or great.
Curtis was arraigned via video phone at Justice of the Peace Court 2 and released on $2,000 unsecured bond.
