GPS Monitoring Device Leads Police to Robbery Suspect

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- Dover police say a GPS monitoring device helped lead detectives to an armed robbery suspect.

Detectives identified 23-year-old Lance Parker as a suspect after tracing his GPS monitoring unit issued by Probation and Parole, which placed him in the area at the time of the robbery.

Authorities said that on May 17 a female victim was sitting in her car in the PNC Bank parking lot on Greentree Drive around 5:30 a.m.. According to police, the victim said she was about to make the night deposit for her employer when she was approached by Parker.

Investigators said Parker was armed with a handgun and demanded the deposit bag from the victim before running away towards Kenton Road.

Parker is facing robbery, conspiracy and weapons charges. He's being held on $60,000 cash bond.
