Halifax suspect arrested in pizza delivery robbery

SoVaNow.com / November 05, 2012
Brancho D. White, 40, of Union Church Road in Halifax was arrested on Tuesday, Oct. 30 and charged with robbery of a pizza delivery employee.

His arrest on the felony charge came after Sheriff’s Investigator Mike Womack conducted an investigation into the Monday night, Oct. 29 incident.

A Papa John’s Pizza deliver driver was struck in her side and robbed of her delivery items as she was delivering order on Ball Park Loop in Halifax, according to police.

After grabbing the pizzas, the assailant left running from the scene.

In other reports from the Sheriff’s Department, someone broke into the home of Curtis Reagan on River Road, South Boston, during the day on Tuesday, October 30. A Springfield 9 mm pistol was taken from the residence and Deputy C.S. Hudson is investigating the break-in.

Also sometime last week, someone stole two large steel legs that are used on a tree de-limber from a logging site on Chatham Road, Halifax. The equipment belongs to Jeffrey Foster. Deputy W. F. Cross is the investigating officer.
