Police call Pizza Hut robbery an 'inside job'

March 22, 2004

SHELBYVILLE, Ind.—Two teens were arrested in the robbery of a Shelbyville Pizza Hut, which police believe was an inside job.

According to The Indianapolis Star, police arrested Charles Hyden, 18, along with an unidentified 17-year-old boy, who is a former employee of the pizzeria. Both were charged with robbery, theft, confinement, conspiracy to commit theft and conspiracy to commit robbery. The pair fled to Kentucky, but were arrested there and returned to Indiana.

"We are going to arrest three, possibly four more people in this," said Shelbyville Police Capt. Bill Dwenger. "We've also served a search warrant at another employee's home. There's a lot more to this."

The robbery occurred about 9:40 a.m. on March 15, when two men entered the store; one herded three employees inside a small walk-in cooler, while the other sought the store's cash.

"We knew at the crime scene that somebody knew the restaurant's business practices," Dwenger said.
