    Woman arrested for armed robbery at Kohl's in Wilmington


    A woman was arrested in New Castle County on Monday for an armed robbery that took place at a Kohl's last week.

    On April 9, Delaware State Police troopers responded to Kohl's on Kirkwood Highway in Wilmington for a reported robbery.

    Troopers say an employee approached a woman who he recognized from previous shoplifting incidents.

    The suspect allegedly began walking out of the store as the employee approached her.

    Once she was outside, troopers say she pulled a handgun from her purse and threatened to kill the employee.

    The woman then went back into the store and stole over $1,300 worth of merchandise before fleeing the scene, according to investigators.

    Drummond was taken into custody without incident on Monday.

    She has been charged with first-degree felony robbery and felony aggravated menacing.
