The suspect is identified as Ashawn Bannister, 41, of Felton.
Camden police believe they have a suspect in a series of recent smash-and-grab vehicle break-ins.
Patrolman Brian Reynolds has been tracking down information from all of the robberies and has identified Ashawn W. Bannister, 41, as the suspect, Chief of Police William E. Bryson said.
The chief said Bannister’s last known residence was in Felton.
Bryson said his department received two complaints Oct. 1 of items being taken from vehicles at Brecknock Park. In both incidents, windows were broken and items left in view were taken.
There were three similar complaints filed Oct. 2, Bryson said, one at Brecknock, a second in the parking lot in front of the Game Stop store and a third in the parking lot at the Texas Roadhouse. In each case, a window was broken and personal property was taken, he added.
Property from the first two burglaries was found near the vehicle at the restaurant, Bryson said.
Police were able to lift latent fingerprints from the scene of one of the break-ins, Bryson said.
Delaware State Police detectives also were investigating three cases of thefts from vehicles; the first took place Sept. 6 on Ponderosa Drive, the second Sept. 27 on North Steffens Boulevard and the third Sept. 28 on Burns Way, division spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier said.
Reynolds has obtained warrants for Bannister’s arrest on charges including eight counts of theft, eight counts of criminal mischief, one count of third-degree criminal trespass, one count of unlawful use of a payment card, and two counts of driving without a valid license.
Anyone with information as to Bannister’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Camden Police Department at 697-2281.
