Pizza Delivery Driver Robbed, Carjacked In The Moses Lake Area

EPHRATA, Wash. - Grant County Sheriff's Deputies are asking the public for help identifying three men who robbed a pizza delivery driver and then stole his car.

Around 9 p.m. on Friday Dec. 16, deputies were called for a robbery in the 1200 block of Pershing Road in the Larson Housing Area north of the City of Moses Lake. When deputies arrived they found a 22-year-old pizza delivery driver who said three men had robbed and carjacked him at knifepoint.

The driver said he was delivering a pizza when he was confronted by three men, one of whom was holding a knife. One suspect told the victim he was being robbed and demanded his money and his cell phone.

The three suspects then fled in the victim's car. The victim's car was found abandoned a few blocks away just minutes after the robbery. It was not specified how much money was stolen. The victim was not injured.

The victim was frightened and not able to provide detailed descriptions of the suspects, other than the three suspects were each Hispanic and around 5-foot-10 inches tall. One wore a dark stocking cap. Another may have had a bandana covering part of his face.

It appears the delivery man had been lured to the area by a fake order placed to a non-existent address using the Pizza Hut IPhone app. Evidence was located at the scene and the investigation continues.

>>>Anyone with possible information about this crime should call the Grant County Sheriff's Office at 509-754-2011 ext. 468, or send an email to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
