ST. LOUIS – An Amazon delivery driver had her vehicle, phone, and packages stolen in south St. Louis on Sunday. Her vehicle was found later in north St. Louis, missing the Amazon packages.
The driver was in the 3400 block of Wyoming Sunday at around 4 p.m. Walking back to her car after a delivery, a man with a handgun approached her. He demanded the keys to her silver 2020 Chevrolet Malibu. A woman got out of a white sedan and told the victim to hand over her phone. She complied, and the suspects drove off in both vehicles towards Gravois Road.
The victim’s vehicle, a 2020 silver Chevrolet Malibu, was found later near the intersection of Thekla and Oriole in Walnut Park East. The police say that this crime is still under investigation. A detailed description of the suspects and their vehicle has not been released.
“We’re working with local law enforcement while they investigate and taking steps to ensure the driver involved is supported,” Montana MacLachlan, an Amazon spokesperson, said.
According to MacLachlan, Amazon advises drivers that they shouldn’t make a delivery if they feel unsafe, and that the company provides 24-hour safety support for drivers.
