MILLSBORO, Del. (AP) — Police in Delaware have arrested a man accused in a string of burglaries who they say had evaded authorities several times.

News outlets reports 33-year-old Thomas Mills Jr. was taken into custody at his girlfriend’s house Sunday afternoon in Millsboro. A news release from Delaware State Police says Mills had been identified as a suspect in early November in connection to four burglaries in the Harbeson and Millsboro areas.

Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe says in the release that authorities learned Mills violated a no contact order with his girlfriend. State troopers went to her home Sunday. Jaffe says Mills was found hiding inside and in possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mills has been charged with burglary, resisting arrest and other crimes. It’s unclear whether he had an attorney who could comment.
