Pizza delivery driver robbed at gunpoint in West Ashley


The Charleston County Sheriff's Department is investigating an armed robbery after deputies say two men held up a pizza delivery driver in the Ponderosa neighborhood of West Ashley on Friday night.

Investigators say a Domino's delivery driver was trying to deliver a pizza to a house on Cartwright Drive around 8:45 p.m. when two masked men, one of whom was carrying a handgun, walked up and forced him to give them all the money he was carrying.

The robbers only made off with $18, though the delivery driver said he also tried to give them the pizzas. The employee said the assailants appeared to be between 18 and 22 years of age.

Dogs tracked a scent towards the fence lining the residence where they found several $1 bills and a bag of change.
