DOVER, Del. - A Dover man has been charged, in connection with the robbery of a gas station earlier in March.

Dover Police say on Sunday, officers found 18-year-old Maurice Parker, sitting on a porch on South New Street. Parker reportedly had an active capias for failure to pay on a prior shoplifting charge, so he was taken into custody.

During the arrest, Officers say they found a loaded Strum, Ruger, and Company .22 Caliber Revolver in Parker's waistband, which he is prohibited from having because of a prior felony conviction.

The arresting officers contacted the Dover Police Criminal Investigations Unit, when they noticed that Parker fit the description of the suspect in the March 18th armed robbery of the U.S. Gas. Police say during an interview with detectives, Parker admitted that he was the suspect.

He was then charged with robbery 1st degree, possession of firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by person prohibited, wearing a disguise during commission of a felony, and conspiracy 2nd degree, in connection to that incident.

For Sunday's arrest, he was charged with possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by person prohibited, and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.

Parker is now being held at James. T. Vaughn Correction Center on $57,500 cash bond.
