Mikeal Stone, 19, of Newark and Kalin Jackson, 18, of New Castle, Del. were arrested on Jan. 3 and Jan. 9 by Newark police for two residential robberies occurring in late October.
Stone and Jackson robbed an unoccupied home in the unit block of South Fawn Drive between 1 and 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 22, 2012. They forced open a rear door and once inside they removed a computer and jewelry from the home.
On Oct. 23, Stone and Jackson robbed a house in the unit block of Sue Lane between 6 and 8:30 a.m. The suspects entered the house via an unsecured rear window and took a computer and other electrical devices, according to a Newark police press release.
The suspects were identified by a witness who reported seeing them in the area of Sue Lane before the robbery and fingerprints at the South Fawn residence tied Jackson to the crime, according to the press release. Stone sold the jewelry to a local pawn shop. Stone is now released on $13,500 unsecured bail and Jackson is in custody at the Howard R. Youth Correctional Center on $27,100 secured bail, according to the press release.
