FENWICK ISLAND (Oct. 15, 2015) – Following an investigation into a “smash-and-grab” vehicle break-in at Fenwick Island State Park, DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation Natural Resources Police arrested a Sussex County woman and man Oct. 13 on multiple felony and misdemeanor charges. Parks & Recreation Natural Resources Police tracked the pair after credit cards stolen from the vehicle were used at several Bethany Beach businesses within minutes of the break-in.

Brittany L. Seiders, 27, of Frankford, was charged with four felony counts of forgery; one felony count each of identity theft and third-degree burglary; four counts of unlawful use of a credit card, and one count each of theft, criminal mischief and attempted unlawful use of a credit card under $1,500, all misdemeanors. Seiders was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3 in Georgetown and released on $5,000 unsecured bond pending a preliminary hearing.

Charles H. Hawkins, 50, of Millsboro, was charged with one felony count each of identity theft, second-degree conspiracy and third-degree burglary; and one misdemeanor count each of criminal mischief under $1,000 and theft under $1,500. Hawkins was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3 and released on $2,200 unsecured bond pending a preliminary hearing.

Parks & Recreation Natural Resources Police, better known as Park Rangers, “are on the job not only to protect visitors who come to enjoy Delaware State Parks, but also to combat crimes that occur on Parks’ property,” said Parks & Recreation Natural Resources Police Chief Wayne Kline. “We are a police force like any other in Delaware – dedicated to enforcing the law and stopping crime.”
