Delaware State Police are investigating the robbery of a Millsboro-area liquor store that occurred Saturday night.

An investigation determined that the incident happened on Saturday, June 3, around 9:15 p.m., when a male suspect entered Gumboro Liquors, located at 38398 Millsboro Highway. The suspect approached the sales counter and confronted two female clerks, implying that he was armed and demanding cash from the register. The clerks, however, refused to comply, so the suspect removed the register from the counter and exited the store. He then entered a dark-colored pick-up truck of unknown make and model and fled in an unknown direction. There were no injuries.

The suspect was described as a male of an unknown race. He was between five foot five and five foot seven feet tall, weighed between 150 and 175 pounds, and was wearing blue jeans, a light-colored flannel jacket, sneakers, a dark-colored knit cap and a bandana covering his face.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident they are asked to contact the Troop 4 at 302-856-5850. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
