MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - All it took was the promise of free pizza to convince a Memphis teen to help rob a pizza delivery guy earlier this month.
Police were called to the 3200-block of Southern Avenue near the University of Memphis on Tuesday, July 10. The victim told officers he was delivering a pizza when two male suspects walked up and demanded his money and pizza or he'd be shot. The victim gave the suspects the pizza, $20 and his cell phone.
Investigators developed 19-year-old Tony Hamer as a suspect, and apprehended him on Monday, July 23. Upon questioning, Hamer admitted to police he agreed to act as a lookout and assist in the robbery and got three slices of pizza in return.
Tony Hamer is charged with Robbery, and is being held at the Shelby County Jail on $35,000 bond.
