* In Fredericksburg, Va., the robbery of a pizza delivery driver, which netted two pies and $15, could result in lengthy prison terms for three area teens.

According to the Free Lance-Star, a delivery driver went to a townhouse at 10:40 p.m. on June 4, in response to an order placed via cell phone.

The report said the driver was greeted by three young men, who invited him in while pretending to dig for money in their pockets. The driver then was struck in the head with a metal object, threatened with a knife and told to turn over his money.

As the robbers fled from the townhouse, the victim returned to his vehicle and called 911 on his cell phone.

According to police, the cell phone number used to call in the pizza order led police to the trio. They were arrested and charged with robbery and aggravated malicious wounding, both of which carry potential life sentences.

Police also said the townhouse, where the robbery occurred, was vacated the day before.

* In Akron, Ohio, the robbery of a delivery driver marked the third-such area theft this week.

According to the Beacon Journal, in the most recent incident, a driver was robbed at gunpoint shortly after midnight on June 5.

The 53-year-old Papa John's driver told police two men approached him with what appeared to be a shotgun, demanded the food and his money and fled on foot. The theft totaled two pizzas and $15.

* In Clinton, N.C. -- A pair of men attempted to rob two Papa John's employees making a night deposit at a local bank, but the money had already been deposited.

According to the Sampson Independent, pizzeria employee John Bacia made the drop and started to return to his vehicle when a man appeared out of the shadows from the side of the bank.

The man, wearing all black with a white t-shirt around his head, displayed a gun and demanded the money, but Bacia told him it had already been deposited. The bandit then demanded his wallet, but Bacia told him he didn't carry one.

A second man came out from the side of the building and saw Bacia's coworker, Debbie Daugherty, still in the vehicle. The report said he yelled to the first suspect and both men fled on foot.
