WILMINGTON, DE — The Delaware State Police announced they are investigating a bank robbery that occurred Wednesday afternoon at the M&T Bank in Wilmington and are requesting the public’s assistance with locating the suspect, 57-year-old Brian Adam of Wilmington, Delaware.

Detectives allege that on July 5, 2023, at approximately 12:50 p.m., Troopers responded to the M&T Bank, located at 5701 Concord Pike, for a report of a robbery. Troopers learned that Adam approached the teller and demanded money. The teller complied, and Adam fled from the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash in a blue bag. Troopers attempted to locate Adam in the surrounding area but were unable to find him.

Adam’s current whereabouts are unknown. He has a deformed left hand and may be in the North Wilmington area. He is also a suspect in a bank robbery investigation that began in late June.

The Troop 2 Robbery Unit is investigating this incident. Detectives are asking anyone with information regarding this case to contact Detective J. Dempsey by calling 302-365-8472. Information may also be provided by contacting Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-847-3333.
