Delaware State Police say they've arrested a suspect and recovered a safe in Pennsylvania stolen from a Wilmington middle school. Police say the public helped detectives identify 24-year-old Robert Willard of Claymont and 23-year-old Michael Williams of Linwood, Pa.

A video camera at Talley Middle School captured the men wheeling the safe out of the building over the weekend.

After the men were identified this week, a Chester police detective told state police he had Williams in custody. Police say Williams shaved his head, hoping to avoid being recognized.

Police found the empty safe in a nearby creek in Pennsylvania. Both men are charged with burglary and conspiracy, but police are still searching for Willard.
