Robber of pizza deliverer drives away in a Cadillac

January 28, 1994

A Domino's deliveryman who had just taken a pizza to a Brooklyn Park home was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night, county police said.

Richard L. Jones, 27, had just delivered a pizza to a house in the 400 block of Seward Ave. about 10 p.m. when he was approached by a man armed with a handgun, police said.

Police said the robber drove off in a brown, four-door Cadillac. The robber was described as a black male in his early 20s, standing 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing between 150 and 160 pounds. He was wearing a brown leather jacket with a logo on the back, a black knit hat and blue jeans.

Police declined to say how much money was taken.

Thieves take video game, ignore expensive items

Whoever broke into a Brooklyn Park home Tuesday afternoon apparently decided against hauling out the big-ticket items and instead went for the trivial: a $70 Sega video game cartridge.

The break-in occurred between 3 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. in the 500 block of Taney Ave. County police said the house had been ransacked, but added in a report, "the suspect had passed by cameras, VCRs, change and TV sets."

Authorities said the same house

had been broken into Jan. 6.
