HARRINGTON — A 37-year-old Harrington man was arrested on burglary and resisting arrest charges after allegedly breaking into a house and fleeing on foot from officers Monday, authorities said.

According to Harrington police spokesman Capt. Earl K. Brode, officers were called to a residence in the 100 block of Dorman Street for a suspicious person report at approximately 5:15 p.m. Officers saw Mitchell L. Harding Jr. outside of the residence carrying items from the home, Capt. Brode said.

Mr. Harding was taken into custody after a brief foot pursuit, authorities said. After he was taken into custody, police recovered property including electronics, clothing and tools, Capt. Brode said.

Police alleged that Mr. Harding broke a window at the residence and entered through the broken window.

Mr. Harding was charged with second-degree burglary, theft under $1,500 (two counts), resisting arrest, and criminal mischief under $1,000.

He was arraigned via video phone at Justice of the Peace Court 2 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institute in default of $4,500 secured bond.
