DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested two brothers accused of robbing a Dover liquor store.

Troopers said that at around 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, a man walked around Mr. B's Wine and Spirits on East Lebanon Road and left without making a purchase. Police said that just moments later, another man entered the store, implied to an employee that he had a gun, and took two bottles of vodka from a display shelf.

Police said the employee tried to hit the man with a baseball bat but missed. The suspect then ran out of the store with the vodka.

After an investigation, troopers on Friday arrested 21-year-old Joshua T. Smith of Camden and 20-year-old Dajaniel L. Smith of Dover. Both are charged with second-degree robbery and second-degree conspiracy with the elder Smith also charged with two counts of shoplifting.

Joshua Smith is being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $4,000 secured bond and his brother is being held there on $3,500 secured bond.
