Rehoboth police say he broke into a home in the 100 block of Hickman Street.
Harry D. Johnson Jr., 50, of Milton, was arrested early Tuesday morning after an investigation revealed that he broke into a residence in the 100 block of Hickman Street and removed property from inside.
On Monday, Sept. 10, at around 9:40 p.m., officers responded to an apartment located in the 100 block of Hickman Street where a victim reported that she had returned home to find her apartment in disarray. Police searched the residence, but did not locate anyone inside.
It was determined that a TV, a fan, an extension cord and United States currency, all valued at under $1,500 were stolen from the residence. The victim, a 25-year-old female, advised that she passed by a former acquaintance, Harry D. Johnson, Jr., on her way to the residence, at which time he made an obscene gesture in her direction. Police were able to locate a witness that observed Johnson leaving the residence with a box at around 9 p.m. that evening.
A warrant was issued for Johnson’s arrest and he later turned himself in to police. Johnson was charged with one count of felony second degree burglary and one count of theft under $1500.
Johnson was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $750 secured bail
