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.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
