Considered suspects in other cases
Delaware State Police have arrested two juveniles in connection with multiple burglaries in the Cedar Creek Estates development of Lincoln.
On Tuesday, Feb. 6, at around 7:15 p.m., troopers were dispatched to a burglary complaint in the 20000 block of West Mayhew Drive in Cedar Creek Estates. During the reported burglary, forced entry was made and the residence was extensively ransacked. Multiple items were stolen, including electronics and purses. While troopers were investigating the incident, they were informed of two additional burglaries that occurred within the same development in which electronics and jewelry were also stolen.
Through investigative measures, troopers were able to identify two suspects, 14-year-old Dallas Mohler, of Lewes, and 14-year-old Jaliel Perry, of Lincoln. They were spotted walking in the Cedar Creek Estates development carrying backpacks and were detained.
Both backpacks contained stolen jewelry and other associated property from the reported burglaries. Consent was granted by Perry's grandmother to search the residence in which Perry resides; electronics and other suspected stolen property were found.
Mohler and Perry were each charged with three counts of the following: felony second-degree burglary, theft, criminal mischief and felony second-degree conspiracy. Both were committed to the Stevenson House Detention Center on $6,000 secured bond.
During the month of January 2018, Troop 7 units handled multiple complaints involving thefts from unsecured vehicles in the Lincoln (Cedar Creek Estates) and Lewes (Reserves at Lewes Landing) area. Both juveniles are suspects in these cases and the Property Crimes Unit will continue to investigate these complaints and exam the seized property. Anyone with information pertaining to these cases is asked to contact the Troop 4 Property Crimes Unit at 302-752-3800.
