Two Escambia Men Sentenced To 30 Years For Robbing Pizza Delivery Drivers

August 18, 2019

Two 19-year old Escambia County residents have been sentenced to prison for robbing three pizza delivery drivers last year

Circuit Judge Gary Bergosh sentenced Michael Anthony Christian, Jr., and Keith Ramone Walker, Jr., to 30 years in state prison. Christian will be required to serve a 10 year minimum mandatory sentence.

On June 17, 2018, Christian and Walker called Domino’s Pizza with a prepaid phone and gave a false address after ordering some pizza. When the driver arrived, they ambushed him and a gun was put to his head as he was ordered to the ground. Multiple items were stolen from his person and vehicle.

On June 20, 2018, Christian and Walker called Domino’s Pizza again from another prepaid phone and once again ordered pizza to a false address. When the driver arrived, he once again had a gun pointed to his head and was forced to the ground while they robbed him. As they were leaving, the driver was kicked in the head as he was laying on the ground.

On June 21, 2018, Christian and Walker called Papa John’s and again ordered pizza to a false address. When the driver arrived, she had a gun put to her head as she was robbed. Christian also put his hand inside of the female driver’s bra. Christian’s DNA was found on a swab of her breast.

After they were developed as suspects, law enforcement executed a search warrant at their residence. They located several items that were stolen during the robbery, including a pizza delivery bag and a vape mod. Both Christian and Walker had also broken into several cars and had stolen several firearms and numerous other items.

Christian had previously entered a plea of no contest on March 27 to three counts of robbery armed with a firearm, three counts burglary of conveyance armed with explosives or dangerous weapon, two counts of grand theft, two counts of principal to burglary of unoccupied conveyance, two counts of battery, fraudulent use of a credit card, unlawful possession of a stolen credit card or debit card, two counts of grand theft of a firearm, three counts of criminal mischief, two counts of burglary of unoccupied conveyance, and petit theft.

Walker previously entered a plea of no contest on May 30, 2019 to three counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with great bodily harm or with a deadly weapon, battery, two counts of burglary of conveyance armed with explosives or dangerous weapon, two counts of grand theft of a firearm, two counts of criminal mischief, burglary of unoccupied conveyance and petit theft.

    pointing a gun at someone’s head in order to rob them should be a death sentence

    Instead of getting “pizza, pizza”, they’ll be getting “30-30″.

    30 years not enough. They had previous charges from March and they were out on the street continuing to prey on society.

    What a waste of the best years of your lives! With that record, and still teenagers, these brats don’t belong out and about among the general public.
