Delaware State Police have arrested a man they say broke into cars parked at gyms in the Rehoboth Beach area.
Troopers conducting surveillance early Wednesday saw a car in the parking lot of Club Fitness and the same vehicle with the same driver two hours later at the YMCA.
Police say a computer check showed the car's registration had expired and officers stopped the vehicle. Authorities say a search of the car turned up an improvised device used to break car windows.
