On December 28, 2018, at approximately 2 p.m., officers of the Salisbury Police Department responded to the Bank of Delmarva, located at 1206 Nanticoke Road for a report of an armed robbery.
Bank employees stated that a male suspect entered the bank and immediately approached a bank teller. The suspect made a distinct motion that led the employee to believe that he had a weapon although no weapon was ever displayed. The suspect was provided an undisclosed amount of cash, prior to fleeing the bank. The suspect entered a taxi cab which was waiting for him.
Bank employees immediately called 911 and began relaying necessary descriptive information of the suspect as well as the vehicle that he was riding in. This information was relayed to the responding officers who quickly located the vehicle in question traveling north on Rt 13 near Olive Street. Officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle and immediately were able to identify and arrest 24 year old Erroll Ralph Jenkins of Salisbury, MD. Jenkins was taken into custody without incident and charged with the bank robbery. Search of the vehicle resulted in additional evidence being located.
Further investigation revealed that the taxi cab driver was not part of this incident and was simply there to pick up a paying fare with no knowledge of the intent of Jenkins. Jenkins was transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center for an initial appearance hearing. There were no injuries reported as a result of this armed robbery.
ARRESTED: Erroll Ralph Jenkins, 24 years of age, Salisbury, MD CHARGES: Armed robbery, robbery, theft, assault 1st degree, assault 2nd degree
