MILLSBORO, Del.- A Millsboro man was arrested Saturday morning, shortly after robbing the M&T Bank located at 31860 Longneck Road. 

According to police, Hakim Drake, 32, of Millsboro, entered the bank at approximately 9:34 a.m. Saturday, and displayed what appeared to be a handgun. Police said Drake was wearing sunglasses and a cloth over the lower half of his face.  Subsequently, according to police, Drake vaulted the counter and demanded money from three tellers, who complied by turning over cash.

Police said Drake then ran away from the scene. Witnesses advised responding troopers that they observed Drake running toward the Longneck Apartments, while dropping cash. According to police, a trooper searching the apartment complex saw Drake exit what was determined to be his apartment, and then immediately retreat back inside, locking the door.

Troopers set up a perimeter around the apartment building and evacuated apartments in the vicinity of the scene. Troopers were able to make contact with Drake by telephone. Drake initially refused to exit the apartment, but after approximately one hour, police said he exited peacefully, and was taken into custody without further incident. After searching the apartment, detectives determined that the weapon used in the robbery was a pellet gun.

Drake was charged with three counts of first degree robbery, two counts of aggravated menacing, and wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institute on $180,000 cash bail.

Troopers are asking anyone who witnessed any part of this incident, or who recovered any money lost by Drake while fleeing, to contact detectives at Troop 4 at (302) 856-5850, extension 208.
