The Delaware State Police are investigating the carjacking of an armored truck that took place on Maryland Avenue in Wilmington late Friday morning, according to Public Information Officer, Senior Corporal Jason Hatchell.

Hatchell said the incident occurred at approximately 11:30 a.m., Friday, June 10, 2022, when the carjacking of a Garda armored truck occurred at Pabian Properties located at 101 N.
