The Wilmington Department of Police is investigating the January 23, 2013, robbery of the Trolley Square Walgreens. This incident is unrelated to two previous street robberies in the Trolley Square area. Detectives have arrested Dionne Hines in reference to the 1800 block of West 14th Street robbery and have issued an arrest warrant for her accomplice, Shawntay Wright.

Detectives have observed similarities between the Walgreens robbery and other recent robberies in the county and surrounding area. Although there are similarities, detectives are reviewing surveillance footage and evaluating physical evidence to determine if there is a factual basis to link these crimes. The Wilmington Police Department is cooperating with the Delaware State Police and other police agencies, sharing investigative findings as part of an ongoing information exchange process.

The Wilmington Police Department reminds local businesses to cooperate with demands during a robbery situation. Attempt to remember any suspect description, last direction of travel, and suspect vehicle information if possible.
