DOVER, Del. (AP) - Dover police say a man they believe to be the so-called “rat burglar” who cut holes to tunnel into buildings has been arrested in Maryland.

Authorities said in a news release Thursday that 49-year-old Thomas K. Jenkins of Capitol Heights, Maryland, was arrested last month by deputies with the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office.

Police say Jenkins had cut a hole in the roof of a commercial business in Maryland on March 9 and deputies arrested him as he fled.

Jenkins is being held in Maryland and will face 72 charges involving 18 burglaries in Dover when he is returned to Delaware.
