DOVER (Feb. 16, 2015) – DNREC Division of Fish & Wildlife Enforcement Natural Resources Police officers arrested two men on Feb. 13 in connection with the theft of two boats in Milford earlier this month.

Kevin M. Schilling, 44, of Smyrna, and James P. McCann, 40, of Dover, were arrested and charged with one count each of felony theft, trespassing and conspiracy. Both were remanded to Sussex Correctional Institution in Georgetown in lieu of $1,100 cash bond each, pending trial at a later date.
