Brutes burglarizing delivery drivers

Cops say thieving thugs have been targeting food delivery employees in The City.

The greedy grubbers have been known to call in an order, ask that a delivery person “bring change for a $100 bill,” then rob the arriving employee of cash and belongings, police said.

“We urge restaurants, food delivery businesses and delivery persons to exercise caution when responding to calls,” police said.

Authorities suggest that delivery people carry a minimal amount of cash for change, and encourage businesses to call cops after suspicious calls and avoid delivering to areas that “present an unreasonable risk of harm to employees.”
