Delaware State Police arrested 36-year-old Adam Prettyman, of Georgetown, Delaware yesterday for felony theft that occurred in March.

On March 29, 2024, troopers were called to a home in the 800 block of West Evens Road in Felton, for a theft. When troopers arrived, they spoke with a 62-year-old victim and the owner of another construction company, who said that several construction tools had been stolen from the house while it was being renovated earlier in March.
