Three charged in burglary at accused sexual predator’s pediatric office

Three suspects are facing charges in connection with burglaries at Bay Bees Pediatrics, the Sussex County office formerly operated by accused child predator Dr. Earl Bradley. 

Delaware State Police say two of the suspects left their children – ages 5, 6 and 7 – in the car while burglarizing the office on Coastal Highway in Lewes Saturday April 2nd shortly before noon.  29-year-old Jamey Lathbury and 25-year-old Holly Lathbury, both of Millsboro, were charged with taking items such as computer monitors, camera equipment, swords and Disney collectibles.   The stolen goods were worth an estimated $1,500.

Troopers also say Jamey Lathbury and a third suspect, 52-year-old David Carty of Millsboro, returned to the office early Saturday evening and removed additional items.

Witnesses provided investigators with information leading to the arrests, according to State Police. 

The Lathburys face charges including burglary, conspiracy, theft, possession of burglary tools and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.  Holly Lathbury was released on $6,050 bond, but was being held for a probation violation at the Women’s Correctional Institute.  Jamey Lathbury was freed on $4,000 secured bond.

Carty was being held for a probation violation following his release on $4,000 bail.  He is charged with burglary, conspiracy and theft.

Former pediatrician Dr. Earl Bradley is charged with sexually assaulting more than 100 of his young patients for more than a decade before being arrested in December 2009.  His trial will take place in New Castle County, and is expected to start in June.
