On May 13, 2019, a theft of a cellular phone was reported to Newark Police. The victim reported that at about 1700 hours, she was shopping in the Acme Supermarket, located at 100 College Square, in Newark. She put her cellular phone and wallet down on a shelf as she shopped. Once the victim realized that she forgot her phone on the shelf, she returned to the shelf and found it was missing and contacted police.
Through the use of the phone’s GPS location, officers recovered the phone and wallet at the nearby Wawa located at 601 Ogletown Rd. During a review of surveillance video from both businesses, officers developed a suspect in the incident (photo below). The suspect is described as a white male, 5’8″ – 6’0″ tall, about 175-185 pounds, gray hair, a beard and wearing a royal blue jacket, blue jeans and brown shoes. He may be operating a dark-colored SUV, possibly a Chevrolet.
Anyone with information as to the identity of the suspect, or information on this incident, is asked to call Cpl. P. Lawrence at (302) 366-7100 x. 3139 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional methods for contacting Newark Police can be found on our tips page, where a reward may be available.
