Woman Robbed While Making Delivery

The Story

This is the era of second jobs, side hustles, and having everything delivered. Whether you are using UberEats or getting deliveries from personal sellers on social media, people are making connections with more and more people they don’t know. For the most part, I love this trend! However, sometimes a routine delivery can turn into anything but normal. That is what happened to a woman delivering a package of toddler’s clothes to a buyer.

Woman robbed while delivering toddler’s clothes

A 26-year-old man was held after he robbed a delivery woman at gunpoint in Morvant.

The 43-year-old victim told police that at about 2:12 pm on Friday she went to Industrial Lane, Morvant, to deliver a package. However, when in the area she received a call from the individual who had contacted her earlier and was asked to meet at a new location a short distance away {…}.

On reaching the area she met a man who identified himself as the customer.

However, the man then pulled out a gun from his pants and announced a hold-up.

The man relieved the woman of her personal items and the package – which included a pair of Polo slippers and a quantity of clothing and bath suits for babies amounting to $1,220.

The police were notified and a team of officers from the Morvant Police responded.

What Can We Learn?

Always be prepared. I understand the need for a side gig to make extra cash. I understand that women need to do what they have to in order to make ends meet. However, we also need to be safe. If you are delivering products to people in the community, you must take the steps to do whatever you need to do to protect yourself. Take self-defense classes, have the tools you need to protect yourself. Firearms, pepper gel, batons, stun guns, etc. are all options for self-protection. If you want to learn about concealed carry, now is the time. The important thing is to get training so you are proficient and safe when protecting yourself.
