Woman On Probation Charged With Kohl’s Armed Robbery

Delaware State Police arrested 29-year-old Nyejierra Drummond of Wilmington, Delaware, for an armed robbery that occurred last week at a Kohl’s in Wilmington.

Officials said on April 9, 2024, at approximately 11:37 a.m., troopers responded to Kohl’s, located at 4437 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington, for a report of a robbery. The preliminary investigation revealed a Kohl’s employee approached a black female suspect that he recognized from previous shopliftings. The suspect began walking out of the store as the employee approached her.

Once outside, the suspect turned around, pulled out a handgun from her purse, and threatened to kill the employee according to police. The suspect then walked back into the store, stole over $1,300 worth of merchandise, and fled in an unknown direction added police.

Through investigative means and with the assistance of Delaware Probation and Parole, Delaware State Police Troop 2 Robbery Detectives developed probationer Nyejierra Drummond as the suspect involved in the robbery and obtained a warrant for her arrest. On April 15, 2024, Drummond was taken into custody without incident by Probation and Parole and transported to Troop 2.

Drummond was charged with Robbery First Degree (Felony) and Aggravated Menacing (Felony).

She was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 2, and committed to Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on a $66,000 cash bond.
