NORFOLK — Police are searching for an accused armed robber who stole cash and two pizzas from a Chanello’s driver in March.
Workers at Chanello’s Pizza got an order for two pizzas around 11:56 p.m. on March 25. The restaurant confirmed the order before sending a male driver out to deliver the pizzas to an apartment located in the 1200 block of Lead Street, according to documents filed in Norfolk Circuit Court.
When the driver got to the apartment, he tried to call the phone number used to place the order, but no one answered. He was walking toward the apartment when a person holding a gun stopped him and demanded money.
The alleged robber took the man’s wallet, cash and both pizzas, then fled the location on foot, court documents state.
Police believe that the person who ordered the pizzas did it for the purpose of robbing the delivery man.
Anyone with information on this crime should call the Norfolk Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
