SALISBURY, Md.- Deputies with the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office have arrested a Delaware man accused of holding up a Salisbury motel.

The incident is reported to have occurred shortly before noon Monday at the Temple Mill Motel located at 1510 S. Salisbury Blvd.

Police said 42-year-old Ricky L. Milton of Greenwood, Del., entered the motel office wearing a hat and bandanna and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk told investigators that Milton was standing and holding his arm in a manner implying that he was armed, police said. Investigators said the clerk then went into a rear room in a manner that indicated she intended to comply with Milton's demands, but closed the door instead and called 911. Milton apparently changed his mind and fled from the motel lobby, according to police. The clerk and another witness followed Milton and were able to describe the vehicle he used to flee the scene, investigators said.  

The alleged getaway vehicle was spotted a short time later on U.S. 13. Police said Milton ignored all signals to stop and led police northbound on U.S. 13 and through commercial parking lots before exiting his vehicle in an attempt to run away. Police captured Milton a short time later and took him into custody. According to police, after his arrest Milton was observed to be wearing the same clothes he had on during the robbery and also had the gloves, hat and bandanna described by the store clerk inside his vehicle. Milton was also found to have a metal pole in his pants pocket that could have been used to construe possession of a weapon to a potential victim, police said.  

Milton was charged with armed robbery, robbery, concealing a dangerous weapon, resisting arrest and various traffic charges and ordered held without bond in the Wicomico County Detention Center.
