HARRINGTON, Del. – Two Dover men are behind bars after police say they robbed two businesses late Thursday into Friday.

According to Harrington and Delaware State Police, the first arrest happened around 1:30 a.m. at the Valero in the 17000 block of South DuPont Highway in Harrington.

Police said they got a report of someone entering the store, displaying a gun, demanding money and then running away.

Responding officers located 25-year-old David Surette near the intersection of Peck Avenue and Dickerson Street, close to where the robbery occurred. Harrington police said Surette was wearing clothing similar to what the robbery suspect had been wearing.

While searching Surette, police said they found the money stolen from the store, as well as the BB gun used in the robbery. Surette was arrested and taken to the Harrington police station for processing.

Delaware State Police said that earlier in the evening they had responded to an armed robbery at 3669 North DuPont Highway in Dover and began a joint investigation with Harrington police to determine if the two robberies were linked.

During the course of the investigation, officers learned the Dover robbery suspect had left in a silver Monte Carlo. A vehicle matching that description later pulled up at the Harrington police station, according to police, with 25-year-old Arturo Rosa behind the wheel. Police said he was wearing clothing that matched the description of the Dover robbery suspect.

According to police, officers determined that Rosa and Surette were the suspects involved in both robberies. Rosa was also taken into custody, and police said they found evidence in the car linking both men to the robberies.

Harrington police charged Rosa and Surette with robbery, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony and conspiracy. Delaware State Police also charged them with robbery and related charges in the Dover robbery.

They were committed to the Sussex Correctional Institute on $28,500 secured bond.
