DELAWARE STATE POLICE BEAT – The Pink & Black Bandit – Thug went robbing at two Home Depot stores armed with a knife and left behind his mug
CLAYMONT, Del. – A hard-working man was sent to the store by his Superior Criminal in the crime capital of Wilmington, Del., and his journey to unload a large chain of stores was underway and included, say police, threatening employees with a knife. The really stupid criminal left behind a chain of digital evidence and when threatening employees with a knife, made himself good for as much time behind bars as if he brought a bazooka with him to rob and steal.
The Delaware State Police reported on June 10, 2018, that detectives are investigating an armed robbery that took place at the Claymont Home Depot Saturday morning, June 9, 2018, and are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect.
THE PINK & BLACK BANDIT: The suspect also was reported to have a skin pigmentation condition which was visible on his arms and face.
The incident occurred at approximately 9:06 a.m., Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the Home Depot, located at 601 Naaman’s Road, Wilmington. The pictured suspect removed landscaping power tools from the display, placed them in a shopping cart and then exited the business without paying. When confronted in the parking lot by an employee the suspect stated that he had a knife and to stay away from him. The employee also observed what he believed to be a knife in the suspect’s pocket. The suspect then removed the merchandise from the cart and fled on foot towards Society Drive. The employee was not injured as a result of the incident.
The suspect was described as a black male, 40 to 45 years of age, 5’8″-5’9″, average build, with a goatee, wearing a gray short-sleeve Calvin Klein t-shirt, dark jeans, black beanie-style hat, and black Nike sneakers.
