Man Charged with Robbing Domino's Driver While Wearing Spiderman Mask
|Richard Whitehead is charged for robbing a pizza guy while looking like Spiderman.|
Yes -- another robbery involving a pizza guy. Is this St. Louis' most dangerous job?
Richard D. Whitehead, a 31-year-old from the 300 block of Chalmetta Drive in Hazelwood, has been charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.
Late on Friday night, the cops say, a Domino's driver reported that he'd taken food out to the 1500 block of Marbella Drive. At about 11:20, the driver later told police, the suspect -- wearing a Spiderman mask and wielding a small nickel-plated handgun -- robbed him of two pizzas and a small amount of cash.
Whitehead is being held on $100,000 bond.
Just last week, an Imo's driver was murdered for a few pizzas and a cell phone.
In September, a Papa Johns deliveryman was forced by robbers to give up his vehicle late in King's Oak.
Last May, a different Imo's driver was murdered in Hillsdale.
Now, the county cops are sending undercover officers into he field as delivery drivers.
