The Georgetown Police Department identified the suspect through video surveillance. Louis Bland, 50, of Georgetown, was found sleeping in the breezeway of a commercial building the next day and taken into custody.
Bland was charged with second-degree robbery and trespassing. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $3,000 bond.
