Troopers: Robberies Believed To Be Committed By Same Man

Angola/Long Neck – The Delaware State Police Criminal Investigations Unit is currently investigating two separate robberies involving what appears to be the same suspect, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier.

Fournier said the first incident occurred around 9:40 p.m. Tuesday 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, according to Fournier. 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 handgun and demanded cash from the clerk, said Fournier. 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).
