Robber's take: money...and cheese

Friday, November 9, 2012

An armed robbery of a delivery driver late Wednesday night netted the robber only a small amount of money, pizzas and a few packs of cheese, Shelbyville police said.

The driver noticed a man wearing a black hoodie with the hood pulled over his head nearby as she arrived at a Jarrell Street home, officer Todd Sanders said.

A resident of the home said no one there had ordered a pizza.

Sudden shock

"After the third or fourth knock she heard a noise to her right, then heard someone walk up the steps behind her," Sanders said in his report. "She turned around and saw the subject with the black hoodie and wearing a ski mask standing there pointing a handgun at her."

She was ordered to get on the ground and turn over her money, Sanders said.

"She laid down and pulled (the money) out of her pocket and handed it back and up to him," Sanders said. She was asked if she had anything else and responded by giving the robber several packets of Parmesan cheese.

Escape

He asked if she had anything else on her person or in her car, then ran away toward Landers Street.

The victim said she saw a dark colored SUV at a vacant home nearby being started and driven away without lights on Landers Street.
