— 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

NE­WARK, DEL.

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.
