Warrants: Pair stole from pizza delivery man

Posted August 9, 2010

— A man and woman from Durham were arrested on charges that they threatened a pizza delivery man from Raleigh and stole his cash and goods Sunday night, according to warrants filed by the Raleigh Police Department.


Quinella Shanice McKoy, 17, of 2445 Glenbrook Drive, and Delexcio Quinn Pettiford, 19, 2018 Spring Creek Drive, were being held at the Wake County jail Monday under $200,000 bonds on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon.

The warrants allege the pair showed a gun and threatened Michael Strode as he attempted to deliver a pizza for Hungry Howie's Pizza of Raleigh.

Police said the pair took two pizzas in a delivery bag, a two-liter bottle of Sierra Mist and about $120 in cash.

    No doubt a dummy move and they should & will be taken off of the streets for a while. I know we have a lot of out of work or would like to be comedians here, but what does their names have to do with anything?? If we want to disrespect parents for the names that they give their children we can start with some very common names, or should I say names that are more acceptable to "some people" that are associated with some very horrific crimes, for example Timothy (Timothy Mcveigh), John (John Gotti, John Wayne Gacey, & John Malvoe), Scott (Scott Peterson), Susan (Susan Smith), etc. The point that I'm trying to make is that the comments made about the dummies names have racial stereotyping written all over them. That shows a level of ignorance & immaturity IMO. A name does not make a person automatically become a criminal. Grow up some of you.

    So a person is not allowed to carry a wallet with money they own? That makes a person deserving of thieving thuggery?I sure hope you don't carry over 20.00 at a time.But let me ask....would it had made a difference in this case? NO.

    If you rob a pizza delivery driver you know you are in the rookie league of thieves.Split 2 ways that's 1 pizza 33 oz. of Sierra Mist and $60 all for $200,000.00 bail.This is a good reason for them to stay in school.Maybe this could be a math problem taught in school.

    mt i am right there with you!! the drivers that carry too much cash make it more dangerous for those of us that don't

    One quick question...Why did the delivery man have $120 dollars on him?? I work for Domino's where we are not aloud to take more than $20 out of the store for change. He was asking for it if he carries that kind of money on a delivery.

    Gotta love those names

    I love the made up names; however, I thought that Hungry Howies only delivered to Cameron Village and richer areas alike... I surmised that there were no ghettorats there. Regardless, there are a couple of rude Howies drivers that would deserve this and I hope the best for anyone else involved.

    Need to teach these thugs that crime does not pay. Armed robbery - that is worth about 5 years of their lives. Lucky they didn't kill the pizza delivery guy. And they did not expect to get caught? The pizza in prison is pretty bad. Should have just paid for it. Fools! And, where are the parents?
