Bank Robbery Arrests

May - Thompson


December 12, 2017 – On 12/11/2017 at approximately 12:50p.m. Newark Police Department received an alarm at TD Bank, 230 E. Delaware Avenue and learned that the bank had been robbed.  One of the tellers, a 21 year old female, reported that the suspect approached the counter and presented a demand note.  The teller then turned over an undisclosed amount of cash from the bank and the suspect fled the bank.  The Newark Police Department then received information that the suspect may be in the area of Sykes Road, New Castle, DE.  Newark Officers, assisted by the Delaware State Police and New Castle County Police, subsequently located a blue Acura ATL on Sykes Road and conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle.  Officers noted that there was a large amount of cash in plain view on the back seat of the vehicle.  Both the driver, David May, and the passenger, Justin Thompson, were taken into custody without incident.  Officers found that surveillance video of the suspect obtained from the bank was an exact match for Thompson.  Detectives also obtained additional information linking May to the robbery.

 

Both May and Thompson were video arraigned in front of Justice of the Peace Court 11 and committed to Howard Young Correctional Institution in lieu of $62,000 secured bond.
