Plot To Rob Delivery Driver Foiled By Cell Phone

Police are saying that a phone left off the hook led to a local pizza parlor employee overhearing a plan to rob a delivery driver.

Police say that someone called Topper’s Pizza in Clifton early Monday morning and placed a large order. The customer apparently forgot to hang up the phone, and the employee who took the order stayed on the line heard a plan to rob the delivery driver for the order.

The employee called 911, and an undercover officer was put in place of the driver. The customers took the pizza and took off running.

Two suspects, Kevon Whitfield, 19, and a 14-year-old juvenile, were arrested. Both are charged with robbery.
