Kent County men plead to burglary

DOVER — Two Kent County men, 33 year-old Joshua Wilson of Harrington and 37-year-old David Sharp of Felton, pleaded guilty to charges of third-degree burglary and maintaining a clandestine laboratory for entering a vacant house and manufacturing methamphetamine, the Delaware Department of Justice said.

Deputy Attorney General Sean Motoyoshi prosecuted this case. A Superior Court judge ordered an 18-month prison sentence to Sharp, along with drug treatment and probation. Wilson will be sentenced by a judge in September and could be sentenced as a habitual offender based on previous convictions for drug dealing, strangulation, aggravated menacing and robbery, the DOJ said.
