MILFORD, Del.- Milford police say two people are facing multiple charges following an investigation into the fraudulent return of merchandise with illegitimate sales receipts.  The pair allegedly stole merchandise from the Walmart on North DuPont Boulevard, according to police.

The pair are identified as Bobbie L. Williams, 44, of Rehoboth Beach and Michael D. Williams, 44, of Millsboro. Police said surveillance video revealed the couple picking up discarded sales receipts in the parking lot before entering the store with an empty cart.  Investigators said they then selected items that matched the receipts, attempting to exchange the items for a refund.  After Michael Williams threatened a Walmart staff member, the pair left the store.

The couple reportedly attempted to flee from officers, but police took them into custody after a brief traffic chase.  Police said they found more stolen property from Walmart in the Williams' vehicle.

Bobbie Williams was charged with third-degree conspiracy, shoplifting, theft by false pretense, and use of illegitimate retail sales receipt.  Michael Williams was charged with disregarding a police officer signal, shoplifting, theft by false pretense, use of illegitimate retail sales receipt, as well as menacing and disorderly conduct.  

Bobbie Williams was presented at Justice of the Peace Court #2.  Bail was set at $4,000 unsecured.  She is scheduled to appear at the Kent County Court of Common Pleas in August for an arraignment. 

Michael Williams was presented at the Justice of the Peace Court #2, where bail was set at $6,200 unsecured.  He is scheduled to appear at the Kent County Court of Common Pleas in August for a preliminary hearing.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
