Delivery drivers targeted in string of robberies
Greensboro police reported three robberies of delivery drivers last week.

The suspects were described as wearing dark, hooded sweatshirts and one was said to be armed with a handgun. Papa John’s driver Nicole Carter told police she was returning to her vehicle after making a delivery on Burlingate Drive on the evening of Feb. 3 when two black men, one of whom wore dark clothes and a ski mask, approached her car. She said one of the men ordered her to open the door, and they took her cell phone and cash. Later that night, Domino’s Pizza delivery driver Travis Jordan said he was return- ing to his vehicle on Cunningham Street when a black man wearing dark clothes flashed a handgun at him and demanded cash and then left on foot.
