THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Three Thomasville teens remain in jail Tuesday accused of robbing two food delivery drivers at gunpoint. Investigators say the victims were so shaken up, they both quit their jobs.
The owner of China Town Chinese Restaurant told me his driver was on his last delivery of the night. He was told to deliver the food to a home in the 500 block of Cassidy Road. When he arrived, he received a call saying the food should be taken to this locked gate at Villa North Apartments.
Police say Laquarius Ellis, Devin Brown, and Stacy Jackson, all 17, were waiting at the gate. "They made the call and asked for the pizzas or Chinese food to be delivered at a specific address and during the process of the delivery, they called back and changed their locations," said TPD Public Information Officer Lt. Eric Hampton.
Police say as the driver was grabbing the food, he felt the barrel of a gun on his neck. One of the men ordered the victim to turn over his money. The suspects took the food, his money, and his cell phone. "Our plan is to speak with all of the managements of the restaurants who make deliveries and kind of give them some tips on how to keep their drivers safe and some things they may want to look into," said Hampton.
Four days later, a Papa Johns employee was making a delivery in the 100 block of Dixon Street. The residents at the delivery location said they did not place an order.
The suspects then told the driver to go to the intersection of Cassidy Road and Kelly street to make the delivery where police say Laquarius Ellis robbed him. "You wouldn't like to think that someone's going to rob you when you deliver something so I think they were just trying to deliver the pizza. They never thought anyone would try to rob them at that time," said Hampton.
Police say delivery drivers should only deliver to places with a physical address and always pay attention to their surroundings. Ellis is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of armed robbery, and one count of firearm possession during the commission of a crime. Brown and Jackson are each charged with one count of armed robbery and one count of aggravated assault.
