Delaware State Police say they have now charged 31-year-old Justin McGaha, in connection with the October 2, robbery of the Shore Stop on Bay Road in Milford.  According to the report, on Friday, McGaha walked into the gas station, and confronted an employee behind the counter. He then apparently asked for a pack of cigarettes, and when the employee opened the cash drawer to make change, McGaha implied that he had a weapon, and demanded the cash.
