Newark Police

Newark – On Tuesday April 24, 2018 at approximately 5:15 p.m. the Newark Police responded to the Acme in Suburban Plaza for a report of a shoplifting, according to Sgt. Gerald Bryda.

Bryda said officers contacted store employees who stated that an unknown male walked out of the store with approximately $85 in Tide detergent and the store’s hand basket.

The male suspect fled the area in a silver minivan with Delaware license plates, driven by an unknown white female, according to Byrda. A check of the plate number showed that the vehicle had recently been sold and not properly re-registered.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male, 5’10” to 6’00” tall, approximately 150-180 pounds with short military style brown hair, wearing a black baggy t-shirt, baggy blue jeans and sneakers.

Anyone with information as to the identity of the suspect or the suspect vehicle is asked to contact Officer Coughlin at MCoughlin@newark.de.us or 302-366-7100 ext. 3143.
