Young Duo Accused of Robbing Domino’s Delivery Driver in Northport Turn Selves In
Two young men accused of robbing a pizza delivery driver at gunpoint in Northport this weekend have turned themselves in and been arrested, according to court documents obtained by the Tuscaloosa Thread.
As previously reported, a Domino's delivery driver called police in Northport Friday night to report that while delivering pizza in the area of 37th Avenue, a man wearing all black clothing and a mask pointed a rifle at him. The man fired shots into the air, then robbed the driver of the food he was carrying, an undisclosed amount of cash and a debit card.
According to a deposition filed Monday, an investigator at the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office got a call the next day from a family member of one of the suspects who said the teenagers wanted to surrender to police.
The young men reportedly told police they were hungry and broke, so they placed an order on the Domino's mobile app and robbed the driver when he arrived to deliver it.
Keith Carpenter, the assistant chief of the Northport Police Department, said their officers arrested both suspects, 18-year-old Brantley DaShaun Ingram and a 16-year-old juvenile in connection to the case.
The rifle used was a .22 caliber and was recovered at the scene of the arrest.
The 18-year-old, Ingram, was charged with first-degree robbery and booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where his bond was set at $60,000.
A new state law prevents law enforcement agencies from releasing many details about juvenile suspects, so the second suspect's name will not be released here and his mugshot was not publicly available.
