A 51-year-old Seaford man is facing several criminal charges after Delaware State Police caught him in the act of burglarizing a hotel in the Newark area yesterday. A trooper on patrol saw him carrying bolt cutters in the parking lot within the fenced-off property of the Country Inn and Suites on Old Churchmans Road. The hotel is currently closed with a fence bordering the property and multiple signs to keep off the property.
