A Wilmington man is charged with burglary after he broke into a Newark-area home and stole various electronics, according to the Newark Police Department.

Mark L. Hilaman, 25, is charged with second-degree burglary and two counts of theft under $1,500, according to a release by Newark police. On April 5, about 1:30 a.m., officers spoke with two 21-year-old male University of Delaware students who said an unknown person entered their home, possibly through an unlocked door, and removed a gaming system and a laptop computer, police said.

The burglar, later identified as Hilaman, was observed leaving the home shortly thereafter, heading toward a vehicle parked nearby, police said.

Officers were able to obtain a vehicle description and registration number for the burglar’s vehicle by reviewing additional surveillance video, police said.

On Friday, detectives executed a search warrant at Hilaman’s residence and recovered some of the stolen items that belonged to one of the victims, police said.

Hilaman was arrested and video arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 2.  He was released on $10,000 unsecured bond.
