Third Time’s A Charm, Man Charged With Burglarizing The Same Residence Three Times

The Delaware State Police have arrested a Camden man for burglarizing the same residence three times, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on March 15, 2019, at approximately 10:15 a.m., when a witness reported hearing glass breaking and seeing a suspect enter and exit an unoccupied residence in the 500 block of  S. Old Mill Road.  Troopers were dispatched when the same suspect was seen at approximately 12:46 p.m. for the second time entering and exiting the residence, Jaffe said.

Upon the Troopers arrival, the suspect had fled the scene.  It was discovered that the suspect had broken a sliding glass door in order to make entry into the residence, according to Jaffe.  Troopers were provided with information that the suspect had returned to the residence for the third time at approximately 1:48 p.m.  Upon the Troopers arrival this time, the suspect was still in the residence and proceeded to flee on foot.  The suspect was subsequently taken into custody a short time later.

The suspect, identified as 20-year-old Jordan C. Manus, was transported back to Troop 3 where he was charged with the following:

  • Burglary Second Degree (3 counts)
  • Resisting Arrest
  • Criminal Mischief

Manus was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $8,600.00 secured bond.
