LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Lufkin Police Department are investigating an incident in which two suspects stole three pizzas, a brownie, and one drink from a delivery man Wednesday evening.

According to the police report, the theft incident occurred at about 6:34 p.m. Wednesday. A Lufkin PD officer was dispatched to the 600 block of Barclay Street to take a theft report from a Domino’s Pizza delivery man.

The victim provided the officer with the order information. The Domino’s employee told the officer that he as he approached a home in the 600 block of Barclay Street, the two suspects tried to flag him down, the report stated.

When the delivery man went to the address, the two suspects ran to him and said they had ordered the pizzas. 

Because the two suspects were able to identify what had been ordered, the delivery man started to remove the order from his vehicle and demanded the payment.

“One of the males began to reach into his pocket as if to retrieve payment as [the victim] handed the other male the drink,” the police report stated. “The first male then grabbed the pizza and brownie from [the victim] and ran south on 602 then east towards Chester St.”

The victim described the two suspects as black males that were both about 5-foot-6 inches tall. He said they were skinny, had short hair, and were possibly juveniles, the police report stated. They were also described as wearing jackets when the theft occurred.

At that point, the son-in-law of the home’s resident pulled up and said that no one there had ordered pizza. The son-in-law told the victim he saw a silver Buick with orange on the bottom drive toward Paul Avenue. He said it was occupied by two people matching the victim’s descriptions of the suspects.

The receipt showed that the stolen items included three pizzas, a brownie, and a drink valuing a total $70.08, the police report stated.
