Two face burglary charges

February 18, 2019

Two people – one sought by police since January – face charges in connection with an October burglary in Seaford.

Destiny R. Thomas, 26, who also goes by the name Katelyn Hill, had been wanted by police since Jan. 28. On Feb. 17, police found her at a Seaford home in the 24000 block of Concord Pond Road, and they took her into custody after she gave them a false name, said Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe of the Delaware State Police.

Jaffe said Thomas forced open and climbed through the window of a Lewes-area home on Wil King Road on Oct. 23, 2018, and left with an Apple iPhone 7. She was charged with second-degree burglary – a felony, theft under $1,500 where a victim is 62 years of age, criminal mischief, conspiracy and theft.

Two days later, Jaffe said, Thomas and Matthew R. Windsor, 28, went to a Seaford home in the 9000 block of Easter Lane for a reported burglary. Jaffe said the duo forced open a rear basement door and stole items including a flat-screen television, Xbox gaming console, and computer tablets.

On Jan. 25, Windsor turned himself in at Troop 4 and was charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree conspiracy, theft and criminal mischief. Thomas faces the same charges.

Both Thomas and Windsor were arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3; Windsor was released on $3,600 unsecured bond, and Thomas was committed to Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution in default of $21,500 secured bond.
