Delaware State Police arrested 19-year-old Aaron Rambert of Newark, Delaware, following a stolen vehicle investigation.

On February 19, 2024, at approximately 7:30 a.m., a trooper responded to Wawa, located at 970 Christiana Road in Newark, for a stolen vehicle complaint. The investigation revealed that a Toyota RAV4 was left running in the parking lot while the driver entered the store. When the driver returned to the parking lot, the vehicle was gone. A review of surveillance footage revealed that an unidentified man wearing black clothing had stolen the Toyota.

  • Theft of a Motor Vehicle (Felony)
  • Resisting
  • Consume Personal Use Quantity of Marijuana in Public Areas
