Man With Machete Steals Pizza Driver’s Car, Money, Cell Phone… No Word on What Happened to the Pizza
A pizza driver delivering pizza was robbed in the 1500 block of Peninsula Ave in Manilla around 11:45 last night. According to Lt. Wayne Hanson of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, a “male suspect with a machete threatened the driver.” The suspect and possibly another person then stole the driver’s white Ford Ranger pickup and took his cell phone, ID and undisclosed amount of cash. The pizza driver was not injured.
The suspect/s then crashed the truck into a wire fence on SR 255 near Jackson Ranch Road. The California Highway Patrol quickly reached the scene of the crash but the suspect had fled. Hanson said that various items in the pickup were being taken for fingerprinting.
