Milford woman charged with burglarly at accident victim's home
MILFORD - On June 1, Milford Police arrested a local for burglary, criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools, and they say the victim of the crime was the victim of the May 31 fatal accident.
According to Lt. Edward Huey, an investigation by the Milford Police found video evidence from surveillance cameras showing that as soon as the victim of the fatal motor vehicle accident at U.S. 113, and De. 14 on left her residence, a woman identified as Robbin D. Sapp, 55, exited her apartment with a large screwdriver and began attempting to pry open the victim's door.
Shortly afterward, she returned to her apartment and obtained a claw hammer and re-attempted to force open the victim's apartment door, breaking the screwdriver off in the lock mechanism.
Later that same morning, police say Ms. Sapp convinced an apartment maintenance man to allow her entry into the victim's apartment to supposedly retrieve an item that was lost after sending the victim to the store.
After being in the apartment for several minutes, the maintenance man became suspicious and asked Ms. Sapp to leave the residence.
At the time of this incident, there is no evidence to support that the either the maintenance man or the suspect were aware that the victim had been struck and killed in a pedestrian collision just one block away.
Ms. Sapp was arrested at the Milford Police Department and charged.
She was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 2 and released on $6,500 unsecured bond, pending a preliminary hearing in the Court of Common Pleas in Kent County.
