March 21, 2019

An Ocean View appliance store is under investigation after police say customers bought items that were never delivered.

In February, Delaware State Police began investigating Coastal Maytag at 30459 Cedar Neck Road after a customer bought an appliance that was never delivered, said Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe of the Delaware State Police.

Jaffe said about 30 customers bought appliances, either paid in full or in part, and they never received the merchandise or any type of refund from Coastal Maytag, which is now closed.

The case is under investigation by the Delaware State Police Troop 4, Financial Crimes Unit and the Attorney General’s Office. No charges have been filed at this time, Jaffe said. Anyone who may be a victim in this case is asked to report by May 1 to Detective McCabe at 302-856-5850, Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or at
