A deliveryman for the Pizza Hut on Rossville Boulevard said he got a call for a delivery on Cannon Avenue.

He said when he arrived a black male wearing a black hoodie flagged him down three houses away.

The pizza guy said the person who motioned him over was in a red Cavalier. He said he could see two other black males lying down in the back seat.

He declined to go over to their vehicle. The guy who flagged him then came over and gave him a $100 bill for the pizza.

The deliveryman quickly determined that it was fake and gave it back. The group in the red Cavalier drove off to find other excitement.
