Carrington J. Hall has been confined at the Vaughn Center on $1,100 secured bail.
Troopers with the Delaware State Police have arrested a Dover man in connection with three motor vehicle thefts in the High Point Mobile Home Park area of Frederica.
Division spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said Carrington J. Hall, 24, was taken into custody Friday, Jan. 19.
Troopers had been called to the High Point Mobile Home Park concerning a vehicle theft; the victim said she had left the vehicle in her driveway, running and unsecured.
As they were headed to the mobile home park, troopers learned of another missing vehicle, one that also had been left with the engine running and doors unlocked.
Troopers found both vehicles in the park and returned them to their owners.
The day before, however, another vehicle had been taken and in this case, troopers had identified Hall as a suspect. They found him walking in the area, but he ran off as they tried to talk to him. Hall was quickly captured and a search of Hall’s person turned up 3.46 grams of marijuana as well as several items that had been reported as stolen.
Victims had told police they were missing wallets, purses, credit cards and cash, Jaffe said.
Hall was taken to Troop 3, Camden, and charged with three counts of theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of theft, resisting arrest, criminal impersonation, criminal trespass third degree, possession of marijuana, and unlawful use of a credit card.
He was committed to the Vaughn Correctional Center, Smyrna, on a $1,100 secured bond.
