Felton/Dover– The Delaware State Police have arrested two suspects in connection with a Burglary and Theft incident.

The first incident occurred on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, when Troopers responded to the Manship Chapel Church located at 4912 Burnite Mill Road, Felton for a theft complaint.  It was discovered that two suspects had entered the property and removed parts from an exterior air-conditioning unit.  Surveillance cameras on the property captured a white male and a white female on the property, driving an older model Buick Regal.

The second incident occurred on Thursday, February 1, 2018, when Troopers responded to the Goose Creek Car Wash located at 1708 E. Lebanon Road, Dover for a burglary complaint.  It was discovered that the suspects had utilized an acetylene torch to gain entry into a storage room, and once inside they caused significant damage to a coin machine. The suspects stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the machine prior to fleeing the business. 

Through investigative measures, two suspects were identified as 19-year-old Savanah Killingher and 47-year-old Joseph Robinette.  Killingher and Robinette were taken into custody by the Caernarvon Police Department in PA.  A search of their vehicle revealed an acetylene torch and numerous other burglary tools.  On March 22, 2018, both were extradited back to Delaware and charged with Burglary 3rd, 2 counts of Theft, 2 counts of Criminal Mischief, Criminal Trespass, and 2 counts of Conspiracy. Both were arraigned before the Justice of Peace Court 2.  Killingher was committed to the Delores J.
