Dover Man Arrested for Residential Burglary


A 33-year-old Dover Man is in custody and facing several charges following a burglary that occurred yesterday afternoon on President Drive in Dover. Troopers learned that the homeowner had been renovating the house for some time, and when he returned to the property, he saw that the lock to the back door had been damaged. When the homeowner went through the back door, Bradley Shores ran out the front door of the home and entered a different house a short distance away. Shores had a large and concealed fixed-blade knife at the time of his arrest.

Shores was taken to Troop 3 and charged with the following crimes:

  • Burglary Second Degree (Felony)
  • Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon (Felony)
  • Attempted Theft Under $1,500
  • Criminal Mischief

Shores was released on $7,500 bond but is now at Sussex Correctional Institution on a Violation of Probation warrant issued by Probation & Parole.
