WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) – A mother/son duo was arrested for robbery in Wilmington after a trail of spoils led police directly to them.
On Oct. 30 around 9:18 a.m., police were called to the Pepsi Company Bottling Plant at 3501 Gov. Printz Boulevard in Wilmington for a robbery in progress. When they arrived, they located a hole in the fence surrounding the plant’s storage yard, and a trail of various Pepsi products leading from the yard out to the nearby Eastlawn playground.
The trail of Pepsi goods ended at a silver Audi A6, where officers located Teeo Morton, 23, and his mother, Katie Morton, 48, both from the 200 block of E 35th Street in Wilmington. The Audi, which was registered to Katie Morton, also contained various Pepsi products.
