A food delivery driver was robbed in Illinois and the thief only took one pizza, nothing else.

Food Delivery Drivers Should Be On A Special Don't Rob List

First of all, I don't think anyone should ever be robbed. It's a horrible experience. I was once at knifepoint and the thief stole $200 from me. Unfortunately, stealing is never going away. Criminals are always going to break the law. If we can get them to ignore certain targets, I would put food delivery drivers on it.

When a food delivery driver is robbed, there are three parties affected. Of course, the victim is traumatized by the scary experience. The customer is not getting their order, so they're going to be hungry. The owner loses money from the theft.

Illinois Thief Steals Just One Pizza From Delivery Driver

This incident happened in Danville. A customer ordered a pizza to be delivered to their house. The delivery driver was bringing the food to the residence. When he got out of his vehicle, the suspect was waiting for him. The thief pointed a gun at the delivery driver and asked for the pizza. The victim immediately handed it over. The robber then took off running.

All the suspect took was just one pizza. I'm sure the driver had more food. He never asked for money. Again, the delivery guy probably had some cash, at least from tips. The thief didn't try to take the vehicle. It's a pretty unusual crime. A criminal would normally steal everything he can. Maybe, he was just hungry. That's taking a big chance for just one pizza.
