22-year-old Sean Bennett from Wilmington, Delaware has been charged with multiple burglaries and related offenses.
Police say he broke into a home in the Roselle community on Friday morning around 10:13 a.m. and was later caught as he attempted to flee.
During the investigation, police discovered the rear door and a window of the victim's residence open and learned no property was taken from the home.
However investigators later confirmed Bennett's involvement in the crime and were also able to confirm that he had burglarized four other homes and entered five vehicles within the communities of Brookland Terrace and Woodland Heights last month.
Bennett stole an undisclosed amount of cash, electronics, jewelry, and a firearm from those locations.
He was arraigned and committed to the Howard Young Correctional Institute after failing to post $40,000 cash bail.
County Police would like to remind New Castle County citizens to please lock their cars and homes when not at home and particularly at nighttime.
