One Arrested In Connection With Two Dover Robberies

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - A Dover teen has been charged in connection with the robberies of two local gas stations.

The Delaware State Police Criminal Investigations Unit says on Thursday, they received an anonymous tip that 19-year-old Frank Schultz Jr., was selling tobacco products that may have bee stolen during the Valero gas station robbery that happened on May 13th. Police say they searched Schultz's apartment in Alder Park, off Webbs Lane, and found various tobacco products that matched the items stolen during that incident, as well as the long gun used, which turned out to be a BB gun.

Detectives say they also found items used to make counterfeit money, along with counterfeit cash that Schultz allegedly used at various locations in Kent County. Schultz was arrested at the apartment.

Further investigation reportedly revealed that in the early hours of May 13th, Schulz and another unnamed suspect, stole a tan colored 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible, on Jillian Court in Dover, and drove it to the Valero at 1491 South DuPont Highway where they committed the robbery and fled the scene. The stolen vehicle was apparently recovered abandoned, in Dover city limits.

DSP say they also were able to link Schultz to the April 24th robbery of the Valero at 1612 South DuPont Highway. In that incident, Police say a white and a black male went into the store together, when the white male pulled out a gun and demanded cash from the 31-year-old female cashier. The black male reportedly stole cigarettes, and both suspects apparently fled after getting the money from the cashier.

Schultz has been charged with two counts of robbery 1st, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, two counts of wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, theft of a motor vehicle, 2 counts of conspiracy 2nd, theft, forgery 1st, three counts of attempted forgery 1st, and 2 counts of possession of a forgery device. He is being held at James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $168,000 bond.

Police are still looking for information about the other suspects in these cases. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective D. Coleman at 302-741-2813 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Tips can also be submitted to the DSP Mobile Crime App, texting DSP to CRIMES (274637), or by visiting the TipSubmit website.
