Rehoboth Man Arrested for Burglary and Related Charges- Rehoboth Beach

Date Posted: Friday, June 18th, 2021

Rehoboth Beach, DE- Delaware State Police arrested Miguel A. Guiterrez, 36, of Rehoboth Beach, for burglary and related charges following an incident Thursday night.

On June 17, 2021, at approximately 7:00 p.m., troopers responded to The Shore Inn located at 37239 Rehoboth Ave Ext. Rehoboth Beach, DE, for a reported disorderly subject and possible assault. Through the investigation, troopers determined the business owner of The Shore Inn had been away for an extended period of time. When he returned, he discovered Miguel Guiterrez had stolen a key to a motel room and was now living there. When the owner confronted Guiterrez, he discovered Guiterrez appeared to be highly intoxicated. As the owner entered the main lobby of the motel to call the police, he heard a thud outside and found there was significant damage to the windshield of his vehicle, which Guiterrez caused. Guiterrez ran into his motel room after he damaged the car. Shortly after, Gutierrez exited the motel room and ran around the building where he engaged in an altercation with patrons at the Stop N Go Taco located at 37229 Rehoboth Avenue. After Guiterrez exited the motel room, the owner entered the room and discovered Guiterrez had removed the bathroom window and frame out of the wall. Guiterrez was located on scene when troopers arrived, and he was taken into custody without incident.

He was transported to Troop 7 and charged with the following crimes:

  • Burglary Second Degree (Felony)
  • Theft Under $1,500
  • Offensive Touching
  • Criminal Mischief

Guiterrez’s arraignment and bond are currently pending.
