Milford police report the second shoplifting incident occurred on Thursday, November 15, aroud 9:16 p.m. at Uncle Willies, located at 12984 South DuPont Highway in Felton. Investigators say a similar white male suspect requested to purchase one carton of Newport Short Cigarettes from a store clerk, before grabbing the carton of cigarettes and leaving the store.  

With collaborated assistance and video surveillance footage, the suspect was identified as 26-year-old Douglas F. Coppock of Frederica. Coppock is believed to be operating a 2007 white, Chevrolet Malibu with Delaware registration 7627.
