A couple from Rehoboth face charges in connection with three robberies last weekend.

The crime spree started early last Friday, September 25 with a robbery at the Dunkin Donuts in Long Neck around 5:15 a.m. Later that same day, a Subway restaurant in Rehoboth was robbed at gunpoint around 8:45 p.m. On Sunday, September 27, at about 1 p.m., a TD Bank branch in Rehoboth was robbed.

In all three incidents the robber was a woman.

Police have charged 23-year-old Christine Brown and 36-year-old Kevin Worrell in connection with the robberies. They arrested the pair at the Red Mill Inn in Lewes on Wednesday.

At another home used by Brown and Worrell, police found a pellet gun which resembles a semi-automatic hand gun that may have been used in some of the robberies. 

They’re facing charges including robbery and conspiracy and being held on $81,000 cash bond.
