OSWEGO, NY – On Sunday (Nov. 29), at approximately 11:15 p.m., Oswego police were dispatched to the Oswego Sub Shop regarding a reported robbery of food items from their delivery driver.
Upon investigation, police determined that the 18-year-old male delivery driver was making a delivery on Burden Drive in the area of Munn Street in the city of Oswego.
The driver began speaking with a female standing outside a residence at the address given for the delivery. When the delivery person asked the female for the money for the delivery, one of several males, who were also outside the residence, allegedly struck the driver in the head with a closed fist and stole the food items that the driver was attempting to deliver.
All the suspects then fled the scene.
Oswego police began an investigation into the incident and were able to determine that a group of four individuals had planned to rob the delivery driver by calling in a delivery to an isolated location with the intent on forcibly stealing the food items.
During the early hours of today (Nov. 30), police arrested four subjects who were allegedly involved in the incident.
19-year-old Angel R. Britton of 986 County Route 25 Apt. 4 Oswego
20-year-old Daryll A. Bunch of 1370 County Route 53 Oswego
18-year-old Eric R. Gessner of 986 County Route 25 Oswego
20-year-old Noah M. Burk of 5532 State Route 104 Oswego.
All of the above subjects were charged with second-degree robbery (Class C felony) and fourth-degree conspiracy (Class E felony).
They were arraigned earlier today in Oswego City Court before Judge James Metcalf.
Britton was remanded to the Oswego County Correctional Facility in lieu of $2,500 cash / $5,000 bail bond with a return court date of Dec. 1 in Oswego City Court.
Bunch was remanded to the Oswego County Correctional Facility on lieu of $5,000 cash / $10,000 bail bond with a return court date of Dec. 8 in Oswego City Court.
Both Gessner and Burk were remanded to the Oswego County Correctional Facility in lieu of $2,500 cash / $5,000 bail bond with a return court date of Dec. 8 in Oswego City Court.
According to Oswego City Police Chief Michael J. Dehm Jr., Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is a serious crime that was planned out by the four arrested persons. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured during the incident. The arrests of the perpetrators came only a few hours after the report of the incident. I would like to commend the officers for their efficient and resourceful police work.Ã¢â‚¬Â
