Detectives Conduct Two Separate Robbery Investigations

Presented by Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier

Angola/Long Neck – The Delaware State Police Criminal Investigations Unit is currently investigating two separate robberies involving what appears to be the same suspect.

The first incident occurred around 9:40 p.m. Monday May 1, 2017 when a male subject, with a mask covering his face, entered the Angola Shore Stop, located at 20701 John J. Williams Highway, and approached the clerk at the counter.  The suspect demanded money from the register, but the clerk refused and the suspect fled the business south on Camp Arrowhead Road without any cash.  The clerk was uninjured.

Approximately 45 minutes later and five miles away, a 9-1-1 call was received from the Long Neck Dash In, located at 24851 John J. Williams Highway, stating a male subject had entered the business armed with an unknown type handgun and demanded cash from the clerk.  The employee complied with the demand and turned over an undisclosed amount of cash before the suspect fled southbound behind the building.  The store employee was uninjured.

The suspect in both incidents is described as a white male, 5’07” – 5’10” tall, wearing a dark colored sweatshirt and pants, armed with an unknown type handgun (no further clothing or physical description).

No surveillance photos available at this time.

If anyone has any information in reference to either of these incidents, they are asked to contact the Detective K. Archer at 302-752-3791. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
