    A suspended Wilmington chiropractor was arrested after police say he broke into a women's home and stole numerous items, including several pairs of women's underwear prescription drugs and jewelry.

    On Thursday, around 4:20 p.m., police responded to North Pheasants Ridge in Wilmington for a reported burglary. When they arrived, they were met by a woman who told them a male acquaintance, who police identified as Sean Maas, 39, entered her home.

    The woman told police she found Maas on the main floor of her house as she returned upstairs from the basement. Police say the woman immediately told Maas to get out of the house and watched him leave in his silver Mercedes C260.

    Police say further investigation revealed several items were missing from the woman’s home, including prescription medication, jewelry and female undergarments. Police later found Maas’ Mercedes near the woman’s home that same day, according to investigators.

    Police say they executed a search warrant at his home where they found and recovered the stolen items. He was arrested and charged with burglary and theft. He was arraigned and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Facility after failing to post $7,000 cash bail.

    Police say this was not Maas’ first brush with the law. On Nov. 7, Maas was arrested for burglary and a peeping after he allegedly broke into a Newark, Del. home and took clothing and lingerie from an unoccupied bedroom belonging to a 21-year-old University of Delaware student.

    During that incident, police say a passerby spotted Maas crouching near a first floor window of a home on the unit block of Choate Street. When police arrived at the scene, they say they spotted Maas walking in a parking lot with women’s lingerie hanging from his waist.

    As an officer tried to take him into custody, Maas allegedly fled on foot. Police say an officer chased after him and shot him with a Taser, causing him to fall to the ground. 

    For the earlier incident, police say he was released on 8,000 unsecured bail. This time he was charged with burglary and theft and held in lieu of $7,000 bail.

    Maas' license was already suspended by the Delaware Board of Chiropractic after his earlier arrest.
