TUPPERS PLAINS —The Meigs County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an alleged armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver on Friday evening.

Meigs County Sheriff Keith Wood reported in a news release that his office had received a report on Friday, June 2, at approximately 11:09 p.m. from Fox’s Pizza stating that one of their delivery drivers from the Tuppers Plains store had been robbed while attempting to make a delivery.

Deputies responded and met with the victim who stated that he was making a delivery on Number Nine Road when he passed a male subject standing at Number Nine Road and Bridle Trail Road. The victim stated that he received a text message from the store manager stating that he had passed the customer and upon returning to the male subject standing at the side of the road, the victim got out of his vehicle to give the male subject his pizza and take payment.

The victim stated that while he was attempting to get change for the male subject, the male showed the victim a firearm and demanded all of his money. After taking the victim’s money the victim was ordered back in his vehicle and to leave.

The victim stated that the male suspect was 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches in height, of thin build, wearing a camo long sleeve jacket, long pants, boots, a camo ski mask and rubber gloves.

This case is still under investigation.
