Neither rain, nor sleet, nor carjackings at gunpoint could keep one Papa John's delivery driver from getting his pizza to its intended recipient. After "several males armed with handguns" demanded an unnamed delivery driver give up his vehicle, the man walked down the street to the customer's address before calling police. How does that work exactly? "Sure, take the car, but let me take the pizza to its rightful owner?" Anyway, a local news report below notes that a not uncommon scam for carjackers is to order pizzas to abandoned buildings, but that was not the case in this incident. The poor guy ended up getting his car back but alas, it had been stripped.

Crime and delivery go hand-in-hand, and this is not the first time customers have received orders despite a carjacking: back in November, a Connecticut carjacker continued delivering food after he stole a car belonging to a Chinese food delivery driver.
