Newark man charged in three bank robberies
Special from the Newark Post
— A Newark man suspected in three recent bank robberies was captured Saturday after a police chase that winded its way from Wilmington to Bear.
Donald M. West, 34, was charged with felony resisting arrest, disregarding a police officer’s signal and three counts of second-degree robbery. He was also charged with several traffic offenses relating to the police chase, said Delaware State Police spokesman
Sgt. Richard Bratz.
West is accused of robbing TD Bank branches on Christiana Road near New Castle, East Songsmith Drive in Bear and Limestone Road in Marshallton on Thursday and Friday.
Detectives developed West as a suspect through “tips from several sources and through further investigative means,” Bratz said. On Saturday, police found West driving a stolen car in Wilmington and attempted to pull him over, Bratz said. West then led officers on a chase that ended on Lark Avenue in Bear.
