Robberies force halt of pizza deliveries


IOWA CITY (KWWL) - There is some disagreement among operators of two national fast-food restaurants over the safety of delivering pizza to a section of Iowa City after two armed robberies of delivery drivers.

A Pizza Hut delivery driver was robbed Aug. 29 in southeast Iowa City, the same area where a delivery woman was robbed late Monday. While no one was arrested in the first robbery, authorities say two men are in custody for the second crime.

Dan Alexander, the manager of one Pizza Hut near the area, said Wednesday his restaurant will not deliver to southeast Iowa City.

However, another Pizza Hut manager located near the neighborhood says he'll continue to deliver to the area. Bob Crandall says his drivers carry little cash and are trained to know their delivery area and be wary of suspicious activity.
