May 20, 2022

Delaware State Police are searching for two people who shoplifted May 16 from the Lowe’s store in Lewes.

A man and woman entered the store off Plantation Road at 8:28 p.m. and removed a large amount of merchandise from the store without rendering payment for the items, said Sr. Cpl. Leonard DeMalto of the Delaware State Police. The suspects then entered a black Chevrolet Cruze in the parking lot and were last seen departing toward Plantation Road. No vehicle registration information is available, and their destination is unknown, DeMalto said.

The man is described as white, about 5-feet-11-inches tall, weighing about 235 pounds, with a large build. He is missing the lower portion of his right arm. The woman is described as white, about 5-feet-10 inches tall, about 150 pounds, with black hair and an average build. Police believe that both suspects may be involved in similar shoplifting incidents throughout the state, DeMalto said.
