Village Package Store Robbery

Presented by Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier

South Dover – The Delaware State Police are investigating a robbery of a Rodney Village Shopping Plaza liquor store that occurred early Tuesday evening

The incident occurred around 9:16 p.m. Tuesday June 20, 2017 as a male subject, armed with a shotgun, entered the Village Package Store, located at 1614 South Governors Avenue, and approached the clerk at the counter where he demanded cash from the register.  The employee complied with the demand and turned over an undisclosed amount of cash before the suspect, along with another male subject who was standing at the door, fled northbound through the shopping plaza toward the bowling alley.  The clerk was not injured.

The first suspect was described as a black male with a mask covering his face (no further physical or clothing description available).  Armed with an unknown type shotgun.

The second suspect was described only as a black male with a mask covering his face (no further physical or clothing description).  Unknown if he was armed.

No surveillance photos are available.

Due to the similarities between this incident and the robbery of the Valero on Monday night (Detectives Investigating Robbery of South Dover Gas Station), detectives believe the same suspects are involved.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident they are asked to contact Detective D. Blomquist at 302-698-8426.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
