The Delaware State Police are seeking the public’s assistance in attempting to locate 50-year-old Angelique D. Banks (photo 2008) of Bear, DE who is wanted in connection with a robbery, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on March 22, 2019, at approximately 8:10 p.m., when Troopers were dispatched to the Big Lots, located at 4439 Governor Printz Boulevard for a report of a robbery. Upon arrival, Troopers met with two store employees who advised that a female had entered the store carrying shopping bags. The female proceeded to select household goods and conceal them in her bags, said Jaffe. Upon the suspect attempting to leave the store without rendering payment, the employees verbally confronted the female. The suspect continued to exit the front doors when she displayed a holstered handgun in her waistband and announced she had a gun, said Jaffe. The store employees were able to follow the suspect to the parking lot, where they observed her enter a Black Dodge Durango and flee the scene.

Jaffe said through investigative measures, Troopers were able to identify the suspect as Angelique D. Banks. Troopers have been unable to locate Banks who currently has active warrants for two counts of Robbery First Degree and a previous warrant out of Troop 6 for shoplifting.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Angelique D. Banks is asked to contact Troop 2, Detective G. Rash at 302-834-2620.
