Camden man charged in string of Delaware bank heists


A Camden man has been charged with robbing a string of Delaware banks between October and last week.

Delaware State Police said 37-year-old George R. Myers was arrested shortly after robbing the Louviers Federal Credit Union located at 2612 Kirkwood Highway in Newark, Del., on Thursday.

Police allege that he demanded money from two bank tellers and fled after obtaining cash. Myers was taken into custody at the nearby Country Maid Pizza Deli by a patrol trooper who had been given a description of the robbery suspect.

Police said today that Myers has also been linked to two heists from the fall.

Those robberies happened at the Delaware First Federal Credit Union located at 1815 Newport Gap Pike in Wilmington on Nov. 14 and at the M&T Bank located at 102 Astro Shopping Center in Newark, Del., on Oct. 30.

No one was injured in any of the incidents.
