FedEx Employees Rob Co-worker for Apple Gear

| News

A FedEx driver in Pleasanton, California, lost several Apple products from his delivery truck last week when he was robbed at gun point by his own co-workers, according to the Contra Costa Times.

The driver, Francisco Matute, was accosted by four masked men with a shotgun while on his delivery route. They forced him to open the truck’s cargo area, then made off in a gold Buick with several Apple product delivery boxes.

Dominique Hamilton was arrested later that day as a suspect in the crime, and Jason Niusulu was arrested the following day while at work in a FedEX sorting facility.

Proving most criminals aren’t overly bright, Mr. Hamilton was seen being dropped off at work in the same Buick used in the robbery. Police later found a sawed-off shotgun in the car.

Since the two suspects that have been aprehended worked on the same sorting line, it’s possible they watched for specific types of deliveries to pass by to decide which delivery truck to target.

This is why you should finish high school.

No kidding!


Are you implying that Fedex would hire people without even a high school diploma?? In today’s economy, they still can’t get applicants with any meaningful education for the sorting facility???


This is why you should finish grade school!


“sawn”-off shotgun.


This is why you should not GO to school, rather. Indoctrination is not the same thing as education.

It might seem pretty shocking since it happened at a pretty reputable business, but sort facilities are a pretty big draw for society’s best and brightest box handlers… so go figure.

I worked at a sort facility for UPS, and I can tell you that there are definitely a lot of thugs at those places. I’d heard of car break-in’s during shifts by other employees, and knew some people were driving their beaters to work to avoid being targeted. And we’re talking Des Moines Iowa, with a much lower crime rate than your average city. And yes, I knew some people who would have been stupid enough to show up in the same vehicle, as if.

?sawn?-off shotgun.

“A sawed-off shotgun (US, CAN) also called a sawn-off shotgun (UK, IRL, AU, NZ) and a short-barreled shotgun (SBS) (U.S. legislative terminology), is a type of shotgun with a shorter gun barrel and often a shorter or deleted stock.”

Wasn’t there a TV show a while back called something like “The World’s Dumbest Criminals”? These guys could be stars. But imagine if you were getting 10 or 20 gold coins in the FedEx mail.  You might be seeing these guys later that evening at your door with their shot gun! This world is getting scarier by the day.
