DOVER, Del.- A man was arrested Wednesday for attempted robbery after a person recognized the suspect from the Dover Police Department's Facebook page, police said.

Police said the arrest stemmed from an incident that happened shortly after 2 p.m. at the Dover Federal Credit Union, located at 225 Saulsbury Road.

According to investigators, the suspect entered the bank through the main lobby, approached a teller and displayed a note demanding money.

According to police, the suspect then fled from the bank in a southeast direction, through the Blood Bank of Delaware parking lot and entered what appeared to be a red SUV that was parked facing westbound on Clara Street, just east of the Blood Bank of Delaware building. The vehicle then fled southbound on Saulsbury road, police said.

Within hours of the Dover Police Department releasing new video surveillance images of Dover Federal Credit Union robbery, an anonymous tip was received from a person who recognized the suspect from the Dover Police Facebook page as a recent visitor to the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino.

According to police, the investigation revealed Lloyd Morrison Jr., 47, of New Carrollton, Md., was identified as the suspect in the robbery. Officers were able to locate Morrison at the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino and took him into custody without incident shortly after 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Detectives said they also found Morrison's vehicle in the parking lot of Dover Downs, and after a search were able to find evidence from the robbery.

Morrison is charged with one count of attempted second-degree robbery. Bond information was not available at the time of the release.
