POLICE ARREST REPEAT BURGLARY SUSPECT

(New Castle, DE 19720) Last summer (Aug 22) detectives from the New Castle County Division of Police Criminal Investigations Unit Property Squad began an investigation into multiple residential burglaries.

These burglaries occurred in the communities of Lexington Square and Old Mill Manor.  The investigation revealed that 44-year-old, Trevor Livesay was responsible for entering these residences and stealing the property.

On September 6th, Livesay was taken into custody and arrested for two counts of felony Burglary 2nd, one count of Felony Theft, one count of misdemeanor Theft, two counts of misdemeanor Criminal Mischief, and one count of Resisting Arrest.

Then on October 29th, the detectives investigated an additional burglary in the community of the Villages of Crofton.

The detective’s investigation again turned to Livesay as a suspect.  The detectives learned that after the first arrest Livesay was held in lieu of $27,000 cash bail.  The bail was switched to secured and he posted the bail on September 18th.

On September 19th, detectives from the Newark Police Department were also able to arrest Trevor Livesay for a residential burglary that occurred on Woodlawn Avenue in Newark.  He was held in lieu of $11,500 cash bail and on September 30th, the bail was switched to secured.  Livesay was then able to post bail on October 1st.

With this and other evidence, the detectives were able to swear to additional arrest warrants for him.

On November 8th, Trevor Livesay was apprehended and arrested for the additional counts of felony Burglary 2nd,  one additional count of felony Theft, one count of felony Selling Stolen Property, and one additional count of misdemeanor Criminal Mischief.

He was arraigned and held in lieu of $15,100 cash bail.  The bail from the two previous incidents was also revoked as this was another violent felony charge while out on bail for a previous violent felony.

Detectives from New Castle County will be scheduling a property showing in the near future for the items recovered in these investigations.
