COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Two teenagers are in custody accused of robbing three delivery drivers at the same address during the past six months.

According to Sheriff Leon Lott, Tavone Young, 16, and a 15-year-old male robbed delivery drivers on several occasions. 

The most recent robbery happened on January 7 around 9:30 p.m. Lott said the victim was delivering pizzas for Marcos Pizza to 620 Childs Street when Young and the juvenile approached him and took the pizzas, $20.00, his wallet, and bank cards.

The teen suspects are also accused of robbing a Sammi's Deli delivery driver on December 21, 2012. Young and the juvenile are accused of taking the food, his wallet, $400.00, credit cards, a lap top, and a cell phone, according to investigators.

On June 30, 2012, the two attempted to rob a Teapot Chinese delivery driver, but were unsuccessful, Lott said. As the teens ran toward the victim, he ran back to his vehicle. As he fled, Young and the juvenile began throwing bricks at the vehicle, the sheriff said.      

Lott said Richland County Sheriff's Department investigators questioning witnesses in the area were able to determine that Young and the juvenile were responsible.

Both were transported to the detention center for a hearing in Family Court.
