Two Charged With Armed Robbery Of Pizza Delivery Driver

Two people are now charged with the armed robbery of a Papa John's delivery driver in Kinston.

Sherrod Farico Jones Jr., age 18 of Pitt Street in Grifton, and Romando Joel Antonio Jackson, age 22 of Brentwood Drive in Kinston, were arrested Tuesday.

Police say both suspects were located on the 500 block of East Bright Street. They report Jackson was carrying a handgun and Jones had marijuana, leading to additional charges.

The delivery driver told police he was robbed Monday night by two black men at the intersection of Orion and Macon Streets, as he was attempting to deliver a pizza to 401 North Orion Street. No one lives at that address.

During the robbery, one of the suspects fired his handgun into the driver's vehicle, but no one was injured.

    Hopefully Papa John's will see this tragic event as an opportunity to honor and respect the Fundamental Human Rights of Self Defense of it's drivers, and will allow them to carry firearms for self-defense while on the job. Papa Johns fired a driver in TX in 2008 for defending himself with a legally-possessed and licenced concealed handgun... BOYCOTT Pizza Hut and Papa John's pizza until they allow their delivery drivers to legally protect themselves...

    Gee, you're talking about Wilma, so...that's a sin, too! I think God isn't gonna like that! BTW Anonymous, how many jobs have you pulled? How many people have you shot? And you say it's "just as worst"...? I think you skipping classes at school wasn't a good idea and might be another thing you did wrong.

    Another anonymous comment directed at me. What a surprise. I don't apologize for having parents that cared for me, or making mistakes that only involved getting caught lying, or cheating on a test. Yep, I've done those things. You want to talk about God, not me. My mistakes did not harm or endanger others. My errors in judgment did not kill anyone. So, Mr./Mrs. anonymous 11/3 @8:05pm, give me a good, honest response why you think that I am in the wrong here. I challenge you to that. I know what you will come back with though, and that is what makes it so disappointing. If you hurt others, you deserve exactly what comes to you. If you kill, you deserve death. Stop throwing God into the mix here. Too many people use that excuse nowadays. What if this was you that was robbed? Would you prefer me to stick up for the thugs that did that to you? Didn't think so. But, God cures all doesn't he? Whatever. Take personal responsibility for your own actions. Anonymous....lol.

    So Wilma you did things when you were young huh. Enlighten us. You did not steal, shoot, or hurt someone. So you must have been the town you know what. Which is just as worst as stealing, shooting, or hurting someone. Honey in GOD eyes all sins are the same. There is only a bigger sin to you, but GOD looks at it a differently. Oh and guess what Wilma talking about someone is a sin too.

    Quad: Completely agree. I guess I'm old enough and smart enough to realize that my life is more valuable than taking a chance with road rage, yelling at questionable characters, etc, because these could very well be the thugs that rob our homes, steal from the hard working, and shoot to kill for very little reasons. It's tough to read about some people that retaliate when something minor happens, only to be shot and killed. I've learned from my mistakes, but my mistakes when I was younger are nothing like today's kids. I did not steal, I did not shoot, and I did not hurt anyone else. Thus, I have no sympathy for any of these thugs. The only way to fix this is to go to the other end of the spectrum. We have completely enabled many Americans into thinking that they are "owed" this and that. It needs to stop, completely. Let them pick up trash on the road and have the state pay for it. It's very concerning that with every story, these thugs continue to get younger and younger.

    @Wilma: "I don't think you should have to risk your life by stating the facts to a thug's face" You're right. I was merely stating that if I ever had to stand up and be counted, I would do it in a heartbeat. It did look as if my comment was portraying that I seek out confrontations; so I will correct it. I believe the times are getting closer that we will have no other choice but to "radically change" the way we govern in order to escape the rein of thugs and the weak minded. And by "radically change" I mean another civil uprising (but hopefully not having to resort by force ie civil war). It's getting to where you cannot live a honest life without being threatened in your own home by a lowlife state funded degenerate.

    Quad: I love your way of thinking. Put them on an island, provide bread and water, and let them duke it out in the survival of the fittest. I also agree with the fact that thugs can't handle the truth when it comes from rational, hard working human beings like ourselves. They would take a gun and shoot us. My only issue with your comment is this: I don't think you should have to risk your life by stating the facts to a thug's face while using respect and truth. Our government has created all of this enabling, all of these people that mooch off of the system without ever getting a job, they should be the ones that take that away. STOP THE HANDOUTS. I am certainly not going to tell someone that what the government provides to you free of charge is wrong. Maybe that makes you a stronger willed person than me, but I can't take my chances with any thug that wants to prove a point. I have too much to live for, and I'm sure you do too. What a world it could be, but will not happen.
