Delaware State Police arrested a 47-year-old Laurel man who they say stole power tools from a Habitat for Humanity trailer in August.
Larry G. Millburn Jr. cut the lock to a Habitat for Humanity trailer in Seaford and the same morning tried to sell the tools to someone who owns a welding business near Seaford, said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.
According to Habitat officials, about $5,000 in tools were taken including mitre saws, pneumatic nailers, a compressor, a table saw, a circular saw, scaffolding and a generator.
Police located Millburn Sept. 5 and arrested him without incident, Fournier said. Police connected Millburn to three unrelated burglaries that occurred in the Seaford and Laurel areas.
He was charged with third-degree burglary, theft greater than $1,500 and criminal mischief under $1,000. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in default of $6,500 secured bond.
