Yesterday morning troopers arrested Justin Kranz, 27, of New Castle, Delaware for committing an armed robbery at the Darley Pharmacy in Claymont.

On August 17, 2023, at approximately 5:11 a.m., troopers responded to the Darley Pharmacy located at 111 Darley Road in Claymont for a report of a robbery. Troopers arrived and learned that a white male suspect had just fled from the store after he pointed a rifle at the cashier and demanded money. The victim complied and the suspect exited the store with cash and a bottle of soda. The suspect had his face concealed with a t-shirt, but the cashier was familiar with him and provided a description to troopers. At approximately 8:55 a.m., troopers found the suspect, identified as Justin Kranz, walking on Philadelphia Pike, where he was taken into custody without incident.

Kranz was taken to Troop 2 and charged with the following crimes:

  • Robbery First Degree (Felony)

Kranz was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 2 and committed to Howard R. Young Correctional Institution on $66,000 cash bond.
