Delaware State Police have arrested a Wilmington man they say robbed the TD Bank in the 1800 block of Marsh road in Wilmington last Friday.

Wilmington: Last Friday January 13, 2017, at 2:48 p.m., a male suspect entered the TD Bank located in the 1800 block of Marsh Road in Wilmington.

According to Master corporal Jefferey Hale, the suspect then approached a female bank teller and presented her with a demand note for cash. The teller complied with the suspect’s demands and turned over an undisclosed amount of money to him. The suspect then exited the bank and was observed fleeing the area in a blue 2012 Cadillac STS. During the course of the robbery, the suspect did not display a weapon and no employees were injured.

According to a press release, Troopers responding to the area observed a vehicle matching the description of the car used by the suspect near the intersection of Marsh Road and Naamans Road. Troopers then conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle, and were able to take the suspect, later identified as James D. Mullin, Jr., 37, of Wilmington, into custody without incident. Troopers say, during a subsequent pat down search they found Mullin to be in possession of a Walther handgun. They were also able to locate the proceeds from the robbery inside of the car.

James Mullin was transported to Troop 2 where he was subsequently arrested and charged with Robbery 1st Degree, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and Wearing a Disguise During the Commission of a Felony. He was arraigned at JP Court 2 and committed to the Howard Young Correctional Institution in default of $46,000.00 cash bail.
