A Newark man is arrested after police say he was found to be in possession of stolen GPS units in the community of Highland West on Aug. 6.
Patrick Ryan, 27, who lives in the community of The Woods, was charged with one count of felony theft (due to the victim being over 62-years-of-age), two counts of misdemeanor theft, one count of criminal impersonation and one count of night prowling.
Police say they found seven GPS units in Ryan's possession. They say they were able to turn on some of the units which allowed them to locate three homes in Brookland Terrace from which they had been stolen. The officers retuned the GPS units to those victims that could be identified.
Police are continuing to identify the owners of the remaining GPS units. Anyone in the area who may have had items stolen from their car is asked to call (302) 573-2800.
