PA man linked to PA, DE breakins
By Peter MacArthur

New Castle County Police say a Pennsylvania man has been linked to a string of daytime burglaries over the last three months in Pennsylvania and Delaware.

The Associated Press reports 26-year-old Patrick Lofland of Upper Chichester, Pa., was arrested last week and charged with multiple counts of burglary.

Investigators had linked at least 11 burglaries in which money and jewelry were stolen through a distinctive pattern, but police say on Wednesday they were able to link Lofland to the cases through evidence found at the scene of one burglary.

Police say a search of Lofland's home turned up stolen property. Police say Lofland has been linked to burglaries in Pennsylvania too. He is being held at the Delaware County Correctional Facility on $325,000 cash bail.
