Newark – Delaware State Police are investigating a burglary that took place at a Newark area liquor store in April and are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects.
The incident occurred at approximately 2:49 a.m., Friday, April 27, 2018, at Paper Mill Liquors, located at 364 Possum Park Road Newark. Two suspects wearing all dark clothing smashed out the front entry door to gain access to the business. Once inside the suspects removed the ATM machine and loaded it onto an industrial style flatbed truck which was equipped with a hydraulic lift. They then fled northbound on Paper Mill Road.
Further investigation determined that the truck, which was confirmed to be a 2006 Chevrolet 4500, had been stolen from a construction site located in the 1800 block of DuPont Parkway, Middletown, at approximately 12:10 a.m., this same date.
Both the ATM and the truck have since been recovered.
