Yep! Cops posed as pizza delivery men and surprise-surprise: Can you imagine the look on these two fools’ faces when they went to rob the pizza delivery man and found out it was the police. Oh snap! Surprise, surprise. Last year there were a string of robberies on pizza delivery drivers when they were called to a vacant house on Wrexham Avenue. One night, an alert pizza deliver guy flagged down some cops and said that he thought he was being set up for a robbery. The cops switched things around and rode in as the pizza guy, lo-and-behold, out came two thugs. One got shot in his leg and the other chump just put his hands in the air and gave up posing no resistance. Now eat that!
