Cigarette delivery driver held at gunpoint in Memphis


A delivery driver held at gunpoint says that a group of men took off with his load of cigarettes in Memphis late last week. 

The theft happened on February 16th at the Kwik Stop on 1779 Bartlett Road in Memphis, Tennessee

According to Action News 5, the driver was about to unload his delivery of cigarettes to the gas station when a blue Ford Escape pulled up next to his truck and then drove around to the back of the trailer. The men then jumped inside and started unloading the cigarettes. 

The delivery driver tried to run away, but he says the suspects held him at gunpoint until they had taken the cigarettes and driven away. 

Surveillance video captured the blue Ford Escape pulling into the gas station parking lot.
