Pizza delivery robbery fails

A robber walked away empty handed Sunday when he pointed a gun at two Pizza Hut employees delivering food.


The incident happened at 3:40 p.m. when a man named “Max” phoned in a delivery to 920 Boyd Lane. The manager said the order sounded “strange” so he sent two people to make the delivery.

When the two employees arrived with the food, a black male about 5-foot-6, 140 pounds, walked out on the porch of the house and pointed a semi-automatic handgun at them and demanded money and pizza, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

The two employees didn’t have any money on them and returned to their car as the robber fled with the food.

Deputies said they recovered a black bag with two pizzas, a dessert and wings, but they couldn’t find the robber, described as wearing a dirty white tank top, black jeans shorts with yellow designs on the back, about 19 to 25 years old.

The employees were not injured. The reporting deputy said a Domino’s delivery woman was robbed in the same area by a similar suspect on Friday.
