Social Media Helps County Police Identify Suspects

The New Castle County Police, Criminal Investigations Unit, has issued arrest warrants for Kyle Mace, 18, from the unit block of Exeter Place in Newark and Hunter Foltz, 18, from the 100 block of Spruce Glen Drive in Newark with the burglary to a home that occurred during the overnight hours in the unit block of Hailey Trail in North Star.

Detectives received information about the identification of the men and women in surveillance photos posted to social media yesterday morning.

The two women depicted in the videos have been identified and ultimately responded to New Castle County Police headquarters earlier today in reference to this investigation.

Investigators learned Mace and Foltz were responsible for the burglary to the home on Hailey Trail as well as a theft of a gray/silver Toyota Prius with Delaware Registration 599462.  Police have learned the tag has been replaced, but the car will have damage as a result of a recent accident.

Mace and Foltz have been linked to the multiple incidents reported in the communities of North Star and Jarrell Farms.

Arrest warrants have been filed for Kyle Mace and Hunter Foltz charging them with burglary in the second degree, burglary in the third degree, theft under $1,500, theft greater than $1,500, theft of a motor vehicle and three counts of conspiracy in the second degree.
