DOVER, Del.- Police have arrested a suspect accused of holding up a Dover bank on Wednesday morning.

Ronald Rogers, 59, of Felton, is charged with first-degree robbery, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, wearing a disguise and possession of a firearm by a person prohibited.

Dover police said that at around 9:24 a.m., Rogers entered the First National Bank of Wyoming on South Governor's Avenue and threatened the teller with a handgun, demanding that she place money in a bag. Investigators said Rogers, who was wearing dark overalls, a white cover on his face and a dark hat, then fled in a dark green Cadillac Seville with a handicap plate.

Shortly after the holdup, the Dover Police Department obtained a surveillance photo of the vehicle from the bank's surveillance system and distributed it through the department's website and social media platforms. 

Shortly before 1 p.m., a tipster called 9-1-1 to report spotting a car matching the description of the suspect vehicle on Carpenter Bridge Road in the Harrington area. While the tip was coming in, Harrington police officer responded to the area and observed the vehicle turn northbound onto U.S. Route 13. The officers stopped the suspect vehicle and took Rogers into custody and notified Dover police. 

According to investigators, officers recovered from the Cadillac evidence from the bank robbery. 

Bond information for Rogers is not yet available.
