Deltona, FL - Deputies say one out of two suspects wanted in unrelated robberies of the same Deltona store remains in jail as investigators search for the other man.
The first of the two robberies, according to the Volusia Sheriff’s Office (VSO), occurred on Nov. 10 at the Deltona Discount Market on Deltona Blvd. In that robbery, deputies say 19-year-old Da’Querious Stewart implied he had a gun and demanded cash. After getting the cash, Stewart fled the area.
At the time, deputies did not have a lead on who the suspect was. But through thorough investigation, detectives determined Stewart to be the suspect, eventually leading to an arrest warrant being filed for him.
The second robbery happened on Sunday (Nov. 21) when 28-year-old Eddie Mojica flashed a knife and demanded cash. Investigators say Mojica made off with $300-400 in that robbery. He has since been arrested and remains in the Volusia County Branch Jail, awaiting his first appearance before a judge. He was given no bond and has been charged with armed robbery.
Anyone with information on Stewart or his whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Barrett via email at DBarrett@vcso.us or call the District 4 office at (386) 860-7030 regarding case #21- 21327.
