Two men sentenced for robbing Mt. Vernon pizza delivery driver

February 25, 2017

JEFFERSON COUNTY Two men arrested in connection with the November 2016 robbery of a pizza delivery driver in 300 block of North Fifth Street in Mt. Vernon, have been sentenced to 3 years each in the Illinois Department of Corrections on mob action charges.

Both 19-year-old Omar Jackson of Mt. Vernon and 21-year-old Demonteze Rozier of Springfield pleaded guilty to the mob action charges against them in exchange for robbery charges being dismissed.

Police reports indicate that on November 27th, a delivery driver for Domino’s Pizza had been a victim of an alleged incident of battery and robbery in which cash and products were taken by a group of people while in the process of delivering food in the 300 block of North Fifth Street.

Officers responded to the scene and the investigation led to a residence in the 300 block of North Sixth Street, where a search of that residence led officers to recover property stolen during the robbery of the delivery person and an additional prior robbery.

Five individuals, Jackson, Rozier, and three juveniles were arrested in the investigation.  The driver was treated and released from SSM Health Good Samaritan Hospital for injuries incurred in the incident.
