A New York man was arrested on felony burglary charges after police say he tried to break into the home of a Camden couple who called 911 after they caught him urinating on their front lawn.
According to Delaware State Police, around 7:25 p.m., Monday troopers responded to the 400 block of Wheatleys Pond Road in Clayton for an attempted burglary complaint.
Police arrived and learned that the suspect had tried to make their way inside the home through the garage but was unsuccessful. A 51-year-old female victim who was home at the time was alerted to the motion in the garage and saw the suspect urinating on her front lawn, according to police.
The victim’s husband, who was also home at the time, confronted the suspect and he fled the property on a bicycle.
With the assistance of Camden Police Department, the suspect’s bicycle was located in the driveway of a home in the 1200 block of Wheatleys Pond Road. Officers confronted the suspect as he was leaving the house, which police say caused him to drop the stolen items and run.
Officers gave chase and successfully took the suspect, later identified as 29-year-old Darryl Naser, of Far Rockaway, New York into custody.
Naser was found to be in possession of approximately 1.88 grams of marijuana, police said. Further investigation revealed he had made entrance through an unlocked door and removed jewelry and electronics from within the home. All of the stolen items were recovered.
Naser was transported to Troop 3 where he was charged with Burglary 2nd Degree (Felony), Attempted Burglary 1st Degree (Felony), Theft Under $1,500, Lewdness, and Possession of Marijuana. He was arraigned and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $35,000 cash bond.
