New Castle County- Delaware State Police have arrested Naceir Marsh, 21, of Claymont, DE, for multiple robberies and related charges following six incidents that occurred over the past two months.

The first incident occurred at approximately 8:00 a.m., Sunday, December 5, 2021, when troopers responded to the Circle K convenience store, located at 698 Naamans Road, Claymont, for a reported armed robbery. The investigation determined a male suspect entered the store, and confronted a male employee behind the sales counter. He displayed a handgun and demanded money from the register. The employee complied, and the suspect fled the store with an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect was last seen on foot traveling eastbound on Naamans Road. The employee was not injured as a result of the incident.

The second incident occurred at approximately 10:32 a.m., Tuesday, December 14, 2021, at the Getty gas station, located at 1147 Christiana Road, Newark, when troopers responded to an armed robbery. Investigation determined a male suspect entered the store and confronted a male employee behind the sales counter. The suspect displayed a handgun and demanded money from the register. The employee complied and the suspect removed an undisclosed amount of cash from two registers. The suspect then forced the employee to the safe, had him open it, and instructed the victim to turn away and get on his knees. The employee complied and the suspect removed an undisclosed amount of cash from the safe. The suspect fled the business in a northwest direction, across Route 273. The employee was not injured as a result of the incident.

In the early morning hours of January 6, 2022, troopers responded to three gun point robberies in the North Wilmington area. At approximately 4:17 a.m., troopers were dispatched to 7-11, located at 2100 Foulk Rd., Wilmington,  regarding a gun point robbery.  The suspect fled on foot after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash. At approximately 4:39 a.m., troopers were dispatched to a second gunpoint robbery at Exxon, located at 5301 Concord Pike, Wilmington.  The suspect fled after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash.  Based on video surveillance observed by responding units, it was quickly determined this suspect was the same as the suspect who just committed the gunpoint robbery at 7-11. At approximately 5:57 a.m., troopers were dispatched to a third gunpoint robbery at Circle K, located at 1801 Concord Pike, Wilmington. The suspect fled after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash.  This suspect was identified as the same suspect who just committed the two robberies at 7-11 and Exxon.

Shortly after 6:00 a.m., a trooper conducting proactive crime prevention patrol at businesses in the North Wilmington area observed a suspicious red Dodge Caliber parked on Larkal Drive, in the area of Shell gas station located at 1800 Foulk Rd., Wilmington. As the trooper began investigating, a black male wearing all gray was observed running towards the vehicle. The trooper contacted the male and discovered he was in possession of a loaded M&P .380 Bodyguard handgun and a black bag containing cash.

As the male, identified as Naceir Marsh was taken into custody, an employee at the Shell gas station, called 9-1-1 and reported the business was just robbed by a black male wearing a gray sweat suit and possessing a black handgun. The suspect was last seen fleeing the business on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
