Delaware State Police have identified and arrested 40-year-old Dwayne Sudduth of Georgetown who was wanted in connection with a residential burglary

Troopers say last Wednesday before 1 p.m. they were dispatched to a home in the 24000 block of Lewes-Georgetown Highway for a report of a burglary. They learned the suspect had forced entry into the rear of the home. Once inside, he removed several items and them fled from the scene.
