18-year-old charged with robbery

Gazette Staff

An 18-year-old man charged in the robbery of a pizza delivery driver last month was ordered held on $25,000 bond Thursday.

Alex D. Evans appeared before Justice Court Judge Pedro Hernandez on a charge of robbery, a felony carrying a sentence of between two and 40 years and a fine up to $50,000.

Arraignment was set for 9:30 a.m. Monday in District Court.

Prosecutors say Evans robbed a Pizza Hut delivery driver on Nov. 21 outside 3809 N. Tanager Lane in the Shiloh Village Mobile Park, taking pizza, breadsticks and cash. The suspect either used a pistol or implied he had a pistol during the crime, court documents said.

Investigators tied Evans to the robbery after tracking down the cellular phone used to place the order, court documents said. The phone belonged to a friend, who said that Evans borrowed it twice to place the delivery order to Tanager Lane while they were hanging out in an apartment at 3900 Olympic Boulevard.

Evans told police under questioning that he hatched the scheme with the owner of the phone and another friend, court documents said.

The robbery remained under investigation, police said.

"They're looking at another individual as being possibly involved," Capt. Dave Hinkel said.
