(Armed Robbery Investigation-Bank of Delmarva) ARREST

A 24 year old male of Salisbury, Maryland is now behind bars as a result of an armed bank robbery which occurred today during the late afternoon hours. 

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

EJ is the most unintimidating criminal on planet earth. Just a victim to drugs. Sad. That said if EJ was the highest level of criminal Salisbury ever saw you could not so much as stop ordering your food in a robbery. He's like 5'5 150 lbs and wouldn't harm a mouse. He just harms himself because of the drugs. Yet they will not commit him into drug rehabilitation.
