Killeen Pizza Delivery Robbers Arrested

Posted:
KILLEEN -

3 teenagers and a 20-year old man are in the Bell County jail today after they were arrested and charged in connection with a string of pizza delivery robberies in Killeen.

After 6 months and a string of robberies involving those who delivered the pizzas, one assistant manager at a local pizza shop recognized that something was off with one particular order, and that's when he decided to call the police.

"We don't like being robbed," pizza shop assistant manager Ian Schappell said. "Nobody likes being robbed. And they're using force obviously and it's scary."

Schappell said that one of the employees at the Domino's he works at was also targeted by these 4 men who robbed numerous pizza shops throughout the Killeen area before they were finally caught.

According to police reports, after Christopher Fults, Cordell Jones, Roosevelt Jones and Kevonta Reynolds called in pizza orders, they would then use pepper spray and a handgun to rob the person when he or she arrived with the order.

Police started keeping track of the phone numbers that had called into where the pizzas had been ordered, and soon they were able to associate those numbers with previous robberies.

Schappell says that the next step in making sure this doesn't happen again is to make sure proper safety precautions will continue to used when taking and delivering orders.

"Preventing is our priority," Schappell said. "Safety is the main focus here. We have several safety measures in place to prevent this sort of thing from happening again, and if everybody follows these, we won't be a target anymore."

During police questioning, at least one of the men admitted to participating in the robberies, and now all 4 are each being held $100,000 bonds.
