“(Robby) Wells said he had a bad feeling from the start, when a pizza order was called into Hungry Howie’s last week. ‘The call came in for a $74 order, first red flag. Second red flag: it was cash,’ Wells said. Wells was also suspicious because he said there was a similar call three weeks ago that ended with another driver being robbed.” The fact that the delivery address was a parking lot might have been a tip-off, too. “I saw the four young men sitting right there on the bench and the fifth one was right behind the pillar trying to hide.” Why that didn’t prompt the pie purveyor to drive off at that point isn’t really clear . . .
Wells said that when he got out of the car, the five surrounded him. That’s when he showed them he was packing and asked if they intended to pay for the the deep dish delights they’d ordered. When they admitted they didn’t, he got back in his vehicle at left.
He said the incident won’t stop him from future deliveries because “I knew that I was protected. I was completely protected.”
Another DGU facilitated without firing a shot. But it probably shouldn’t have gotten that far.
