Two Sussex County residents have been arrested in connection with vehicle break-ins and thefts in Harrington.
Police say officers were called to the Super 8 Motel on Route 13 about a theft from a vehicle. Witnesses led police to a guest at the motel, 32-year-old Sean Caldwell of Milton.
Police also learned of other break-ins on South DuPont Highway, Dixon Street, East Liberty Street and Commerce Street in Harrington.
