Cops: Couple left kids in car to loot alleged perv doc's office in Del.

A couple has been arrested for leaving their three children in a car while they burglarized a shuttered Lewes, Del., office building where a peditriacian allegedly molested 103 children and secretly videotaped his acts, according to police.

Shortly before noon Saturday, James Lathbury, 29, and his wife, Holly, 25, both of Millsboro, Del., drove their Chevy Trailblazer to BayBees Pediatrics on Coastal Highway and pulled plywood off of the building, gained entrance and burglarized the place while their children - ages 5, 6 and 7 - waited in the car, Delaware State Police said.

Taken during the burglary were Disney figurines, swords, computer monitors and camera equipment totaling $1,500, police said.

BayBees Pediatrics was a hellish operation run by Dr. Earl Bradley, 56, who allegedly molested 103 of his patients and videotaped his actions while the victims' parents were nearby in his office waiting room, according to investigators. He is currently awaiting trial.

State police are also looking for a third man, David M. Carty of Millsboro, who allegedly helped James Lathbury remove additional items from the office during a subsequent trip that same day around 6:30 p.m.

The Lathburys have been charged with burglary, endangering the welfare of a child and related offenses, police said.

Anyone with information on Carty's whereabouts is urged to call Delaware State Police at 302-856-5850 ext. 214.
