Pizza bandits busted

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (WRCB) – Police have arrested three gang members in connection to the robbery of a pizza delivery man.

On Saturday Domino’s driver Michael Crump was delivering two pizzas to a house that turned out to be empty and padlocked.

He was set up, trapped and surrounded by three masked guys.

Crump said they took his phone, $8 and two pizzas and let him go.

He called police, but no arrests were made that night.

“I was glad the gun didn’t go off because with the barrel on top of my head,” he said. “If that gun had gone off, I would have three kids who no longer have a father.”

Two nights later, June 30, police said the trio tried it again.

A total of two pizza parlors were contacted for deliveries to the abandoned home. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
