A pizza man / cocaine delivery guy was arrested this week in New York after selling more than $45,000 worth of coke to undercover police officers.
Officers say that Ramon Rodriguez, 45, used his pizza route as a cover to deliver cocaine. The Papa John’s pizza man made at least 19 cocaine deliveries around New York to undercover officers since 2011.
His final pizza sale /cocaine drop occurred last Wednesday when he sold an undercover cop a kilo of cocaine.
Pix11 reports that the undercover agent met Rodriguez outside of a Papa John’s on 5th avenue on Wednesday night. Rodriguez went inside to get a pizza, some chicken nuggets, and a bag full of cocaine. Rodriguez was arrested when he placed the bag in the officer’s car.
It’s unclear if the officer was expected to give the pizza man a tip for his drug delivery.
Officers said that Rodriguez admitted to using his pizza route as a cover. The man allegedly made stops throughout his day to deliver cocaine, pizza, and chicken wings.
Rodriguez was charged with the criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Here’s a video report from Pix11.
Oddly enough, this isn’t the only fast food delivery story in the news this week. You might want to check out this article about smuggling KFC along the Gaza Strip.
