Five men ordered Domino’s pizzas delivered to an address near where detectives believed three of them lived, then stole the four pies and $20 from the delivery driver who brought them early Tuesday, according to arrest warrants.
One of the five arrested, officials said, is on probation and wears an electronic device to track his location.
Charges of common law robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery were filed against Carlton Julius Barnes, 22, of 802 Walser Place; Sadique Lotronecq Vaughan, 19, of Ahoskie; Christopher Dewayne Arnold, 18, of Asheboro; Montez Jaron Cherry, 18, of Ahoskie, and Marjain Raekwon Howell , 19, of Norfolk, Va.
The robbery was reported at 12:38 a.m. in the 500 block of East South Street, police said. The arrest warrants said the five took $20 and four medium pizzas valued at $86. Domino’s advertises that its drivers carry no more than $20.
When swearing out arrest warrants for the five, police said they believed Vaughan, Howell and Griffis lived at 118 E. South St. and Cherry and Barnes had no permanent addresses. They were booked with the other addresses, however.
Detectives charged Vaughan late Tuesday morning after questioning him at their headquarters at 4501 Atlantic Ave., according to booking records. Between 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., police arrested Griffis at 128 E. South St., Howell at 118 E. South St. and Cherry at detective headquarters.
Barnes, who officials said wears an electronic tracking device as part of probation impose in July, was arrested at New Bern Avenue and Tarboro Street about 6 p.m.
Booking records for the quintet list Griffis as saying he works for the Little Caesar’s pizza chain.
Cherry was freed after posting $20,000 bail. Howell was held on $5,000 bail, Griffis and Vaughan on $20,000 bail each and Barnes on $100,000 bail. All were due for court appearances Wednesday.
