Wilmington, DE – On April 20th, 2021 patrol officers from the New Castle County Division of Police were dispatched to a robbery that had just occurred at 1907 Centerville Rd, The Valero Gas Station. When the units arrived, they learned that earlier a masked suspect entered the store, brandished a knife, and left with an undisclosed amount of money.
Additional witnesses also reported to the officers that the suspect ran from the Valero to a local elementary school where the suspect entered a blue Honda Civic and left the area.
The patrol officers’ investigation was able to identify the suspect as possibly, 18-year-old Isaac Flores. Detectives from the New Castle County Division of Police Criminal Investigations Unit arrived at the scene and assumed the investigation. Their investigation revealed that Isaac Flores was indeed the suspect who robbed the Valero.
In addition, Flores’ history was tracked from his court-ordered (GPS) ankle bracelet and this implicated him in other robberies. Last Friday, May 7th members of the New Castle County Division of Police Special Weapons and Tactics Team, detectives, and troopers from the Delaware State Police were able to locate and take Flores into custody without incident.
