  • The Delaware State Police have located and taken into custody the remaining three suspects in the May 8 burglary of Delaware Shooting Supply on Hearns Road in Seaford.
    Police said on May 11, 21-year-old Daniel L. Cornish of Seaford, 19-year-old Donald R. White of Seaford, and 19-year-old Devlyne King of Georgetown voluntarily turned themselves in to Troop 4. They were charged and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $285,000 cash bond each.
    On May 9, police took into custody 22-year-old Kevin Handy Jr. of Seaford.
    Police said the gun shop was burglarized around 11 p.m. on May 8.
    Police said Handy, Cornish, White, and King allegedly forced their way into the business through a window. Once inside, police said the suspects removed 17 long rifles, 35 handguns, and a large quantity of ammunition. Police said the suspects then fled the scene after the shop owner confronted them once he was alerted by the alarm system.
    Police said they were able to locate Handy while he was a passenger in a vehicle traveling in Seaford. He was taken into custody without incident and transported to Troop 4. Upon searching the vehicle, police said they located two handguns that were reported stolen from the gun shop.
    A search warrant was also executed at the residence where Cornish and White reside in Seaford. Police said they were able to locate a lower receiver assembly from a rifle connected to the burglary.
    Handy was charged with second degree burglary, 53 counts of theft of a firearm, second degree conspiracy, and criminal mischief. He was arraigned and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on a $141,500 cash bond.
    Police are still investigating this incident. If anyone has further information regarding the remaining stolen weapons, they are asked to contact Det.
