Delaware State Police have arrested three subjects after the robbery of a Seaford Burger King that happened yesterday afternoon.

DSP say around 1:29 p.m. Friday, February 17, 2017, a male suspect known as 47-year-old- Michael Jarvis entered the Burger King located at 24465 Sussex Highway, Seaford.

According to police, Jarvis approached the sales counter where he presented a note to a female employee.


Officials say the note implied that Jarvis was armed, however, he did not display a weapon and the employee did not comply with the Jarvis' demands, and instead, turned the note over to the restaurant manager.

We are told the manager complied with the note and turned over an undisclosed amount of money to Jarvis, where he then exited the restaurant and fled to an awaiting car and which was occupied by two other suspects, later identified as 24-year-old Sara Ryder of Milford and 38-year-old William B. Snyder of Lincoln.  

Several restaurant employees and a customer of the restaurant, after realizing a robbery had just occurred, chased Jarvis to the waiting car and were able to obtain its registration number, which they provided to emergency call takers.


The vehicle, which was described as a 2008 Toyota Scion, then fled the area operated by Sara Ryder. There were no injuries.

Officers from the Seaford Police Department who had responded to the area, located the Scion and conducted a vehicle stop.

Michael Jarvis, Sara Ryder, and William Snyder were all taken into custody without incident and we are told evidence linking them to the robbery was located inside of the car.


All three suspects were transported to Troop 5.

Michael Jarvis was arrested and charged with Robbery 1st Degree, Wearing a Disguise During the Commission of a Felony, and Conspiracy 2nd Degree. 

William Snyder and Sara Ryder were each charged with Robbery 1st Degree and Conspiracy 2nd Degree.


There is no mug shot photo available of Sara Ryder.
