Reading, PA - Reading police said a pair of armed robbers who have held up six delivery truck drivers in the city since Christmas tried to rob another Thursday afternoon but were scared away.

The latest incident happened about 12:50 outside the Dominican Grocery store at Second and Greenwich streets, said Sgt. Bruce T. Monteiro of the VIPER violent crime detail.


"We think it’s the same guys who robbed the other delivery truck drivers," Monteiro said.


He gave this account:


A driver of a delivery truck from New York parked near the intersection and his assistant went into the store, leaving the driver in the truck.


Two men tried to open the sliding door on the passenger side of the truck. One had a gun in his hand.


The driver opened the door and asked the pair what they were doing. They apparently became frightened and walked away north on Second Street.


The assistant in the store saw what was happening and asked the store owner to call police.


Police were two blocks away and arrived within a minute to search the area.


Two men were stopped and questioned, but later released.


The incident was the first of its type since Jan. 17 when a Herr’s driver and a Clover Farms Dairy driver were robbed minutes apart.


During the past week, police have been working undercover trying to catch the robbers.


Because of the holdups, some companies have stopped delivering to the city and others have beefed up manpower, putting two people on each truck and sending supervisors out to trail the trucks, police said.


Crime Alert Berks County is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case. The group operates a toll-free, anonymous tip line at 877-373-9913. Police ask anyone with information to call the tip line.

Holdup spree

Reading police said young armed robbers are targeting delivery truck drivers. Six have been held up since Dec. 27. An attempted robbery happened Thursday near Second and Greenwich streets. Investigators gave these accounts: 1. A Clover Farms Dairy truck driver was robbed about 1 p.m. on Dec. 27 during a delivery in the 1600 block of Centre Avenue. He was struck with a handgun. About $300 was taken.

2. A Frito Lay truck driver was robbed about 10:40 a.m. on Jan. 3 near Second and Walnut streets. About $500 was taken.

3. A Good’s Potato Chips truck driver was robbed about 10:45 a.m. on Jan. 3 at Second and Greenwich streets. About $300 was taken.

4. A Clover Farms Dairy truck driver was robbed about 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 16 as he was returning to his truck at Ninth and Chestnut streets. Two gunmen took $300.

5. A Herr’s Potato Chip driver was robbed about 11 a.m. on Jan. 17 at a bodega at 11th and Muhlenberg streets. One robber had a gun.

6. A Clover Farms Dairy truck driver was robbed about 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 17 during a delivery at 12th and Oley streets.

7. The robbers tried to break into a delivery truck from New York parked outside a store about 12:50 p.m. Thursday at Second and Greenwich streets.
