Three men were charged Wednesday -- with a little high-tech help -- in connection with the Nov. 7 armed robbery of a Domino's Pizza delivery driver.

Michael Emanuel Antonio was charged with aggravated robbery, Detective Sgt. Brian Crews of the Shelbyville Police Department said.

Antonio allegedly pointed a handgun at the driver, ordered her to the ground and demanded her money, she told officer Todd Sanders on the night of the robbery.

Little taken

"Their actions were senseless -- making her lie on the ground for just a few dollars and two pizzas," Crews said.

Demetrice D. Woods and Desz Lamar Turner II were each charged with criminal responsibility for the conduct of another.

The driver had been called to a Jarrell Street address, where the resident said later no order had been placed.

"We were able to determine the IP address used to place the order," Crews said. "This provided us with a number of suspects.

Online order

"The pizza was ordered online from 109 Ritchview and delivered to 303 Jarrell St. where the delivery driver was robbed of both the pizza and her money. The three individuals split the money and pizza."

The driver saw a man wearing a black hoodie with the hood pulled over his head nearby as she arrived at the home, Sanders said. She said she saw a man walking up the steps behind her, who took a small amount of money, two pizzas and several packets of cheese.
