Troopers Make Arrest in Year Long String of Robberies


Wilmington – Delaware State Police detectives have arrested Cody Bowman-Moak, 17, of Wilmington, for his involvement in a string of robberies which have occurred over the past year.

Beginning on Monday January 23, 2017, the Delaware State Police began investigating a series of robberies, that were occurring along the Concord Pike (U.S. 202) corridor, in the Fairfax area of Wilmington. During these robberies, the suspect would disguise his identity before entering the business, and then present a demand note upon making contact with an employee. In two of the robberies, the suspect displayed a handgun to compel the victims to turn over cash. In all of the reported robberies, the suspect fled on foot into the subdivision of Blue Rock Manor/Fairfax South.

Through various investigative measures Bowman-Moak was developed as a suspect and a search warrant was executed at his residence. As a result of the search, detectives located corroborating evidence linking him to the below listed robberies.

  • McDonalds 2507 Concord Pike (1/23/17)
  • Walgreens 2119 Concord Pike (1/30/17)
  • McDonalds 2507 Concord Pike (7/28/17)
  • Subway 3614 Concord Pike (10/6/17)

On Tuesday, January 16, 2018, Bowman-Moak was arrested and formally charged with 6 counts of Robbery 1st Degree and 5 counts of Wearing a Disguise During the Commission of a Felony. He was subsequently committed to the New Castle County Detention Center in lieu of $140,000 secured bail.
