Randy Riddle is a name you’ll want to remember if you work at a pizza place that delivers. The so-called “pizza delivery bandit” has been ordered not to place any more calls for pizza anywhere. Riddle faces four counts of harassing phone calls, two counts of first-degree petty theft and one count of second-degree petty theft, according to Sebastian Police.
Riddle looks like he has eaten a lot more pizzas than he’s rejected. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case. From May 30 to June 18, he allegedly made calls from five different phone numbers. He either used false names or refused to give one (presumably to protect his sterling rep). Riddle would send pizza delivery drivers to false addresses or claim he didn’t order. Businesses claim to have lost a grand total of $667.
Riddle also phoned Sebastian Police, Sebastian City Hall and the Florida Department of Health to complain about the targeted restaurants. He was arrested and taken to the Indian River County Jail on Aug. 1. He is now out after posting $5,500 bail (or approximately 341 pizzas, if you believe the anti-delivery lobby over at DiGiorno’s).
