The latest crime news across the world of 48,000 restaurants.*
In Conyers, Ga., southeast of Atlanta, a 20-year-old man was charged with armed robbery, and two others are also facing charges, after they allegedly robbed a Papa John’s delivery man at gunpoint of pizza and drinks last Thursday.
The victim said he was walking to the door of the delivery address at 11:20 p.m. when he heard someone come up behind him. The suspect — later identified as Damon Maurice Moody — had a dark-colored gun and told the driver to set his hot bag and drink bag on the ground. The driver complied, and the suspect grabbed the bags and ran off, according to the Newton Citizen. The total cost of the items taken was $26.92.
In Wisconsin’s Racine County, a 42-year-old Illinois woman was charged with drunk driving and forgery after she tried to buy $49 in food from a Taco Bell with a counterfeit $50 bill, says the Racine County Eye.
* Yum has 43,000 KFCs, Pizza Huts and Taco Bells in nearly 140 countries; Papa John’s has 4,900 in 37 countries, and Texas Roadhouse has 485 restaurants in five countries. With that many locations, crimes inevitably will occur — with potentially serious legal consequences for the companies.
