The Delaware State Police are looking for three suspects they say were involved in a robbery that occurred at a Shell gas station in Newark early Saturday morning. 

On Saturday at around 5:07 a.m., troopers responded to a report of a robbery at the Shell gas station located at 1148 Christiana Road. 

According to police, the preliminary investigation revealed three suspects used a white van to crash into the gas station’s front glass window while the business was open for service.

There were no reported injuries.
