DETROIT (WWJ) – A FedEx truck driver was carjacked on Detroit’s west side as he tried to deliver hundreds of packages ahead of the holidays.

The incident happened around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 16000 block of Lindsey, just south of Southfield and McNichols roads.

Police say the 37-year-old driver was parked at the located when a masked suspect entered his truck, flashed a gun and ordered the driver out of the truck. The bandit then took off in the vehicle, which was carrying over 200 packages. The driver was uninjured.

The truck was later found not far away on Harlow Avenue, and two people were arrested. No word if any packages were recovered.

The driver, who was on the job for less than two months, says he kept thinking about getting back to his young daughter. He plans to return to work Wednesday.

      what’s the fuss ?

      trucks particularly in large cities has been in play since the days of the bootleggers.

      coolest “progress” in that “wealth redistribution” business is called “porch shopping”. gangs just follow parcel delivery trucks and “emancipate” parcels set minutes before on the addressee’s porch. they say the better stuff comes in cartons with some hoity toity, name brand logo’d box.

      …and FedEx as well?


    1. No place to give you a “Thumbs Up” so I’ll put it here!

    2. My guess is that it was a college educated, White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant male with a masters degree in a tech field, married with 3 children with a mortgage on a suburban home. I mean, seriously who else is responsible for 86% of all the violent crime in this country but those GD WASPs! We’ve got to round these guys up and deport them back to Europe! I don’t give a damn what they say about “WASP lives matter”. What matters is that we get them out of our lives.

    Guaranteed these will be repeat offenders. Revolving door justice system is a joke.

    1. It’s not a joke to the justice system which keeps that door rotating. It is a serious business. They know damn well that the guys they let out without any job training or close supervision will be repeat offenders. They are counting on it to keep them in business with judges, prosecutors, jailers and cops. It is all a big racket and they keep it going at YOUR expense. You pay for it with taxes and you pay for it when you get victimized. Sure, it would be a big joke, if it were not true. The justice system is the biggest criminal enterprise of all. All based on fraud. All based on fear. It’s all about jobs and fat pensions to them. I’d frankly rather have to deal with the criminals than the justice system. The criminals are at least honest enough that they don’t pretend to be honorable, forthright and on the side of morality like the self-serving phonies in the justice system. God help us all.

    Each truck needs the following sign; “This truck contains only work boots and father’s day cards.”

    1. James Curry says:

      I see what you did there. haha!

    2. Hao De says:

      better sign…

      “driver carries no more than $20

      worth of ammunition”

      1. This truck insured by Smith & Wesson

  7. Timmy Guinn says:

    How could the criminal have a gun? I thought they had laws against owning a gun there.

  8. Bill Smith says:

    What often turns out to be the case is that the driver is part of the crew that boosted the truck. Make sure to look into that, if only to clear him of any wrong-doing.

  9. 30 year ago that was a semi affluent neighborhood. But guess what moved in and changed all that?

  10. bandit08 says:

    Happened in Detroit?!?! – Get out!

  11. budsnblooms says:

    This tells us something about those screaming for racial equality…the thug likely ruined 200 people’s Chrismas…but what do they care? Time to crack down on illegal gun possessions with stop and frisk across the US.

  12. Mike Arvand says:

    Detroit…. guess the perp.

  13. Bandit must have been one of those unregistered Hillary voters, who put voter numbers higher than registries.

  14. I echo bandit08 here – can’t believe this happened in Detroit. CBS should be ashamed of this race baiting. Only print stories about car jackings in white fly over country please.

    Knee grows just can’t be civil. They turn every place they go into an African hell hole.

    Pure Detroit! The state of Michigan ought to update their advertising campaign, offering tours of an American City that is closest to one in the Third World. Simply call the campaign “Pure Detroit.”

  17. Bene Teau says:

    A monkey doing what monkeys do! What do you expect?

  18. Yea, CBS , FedEx trucks do carry packages

  19. At first I thought it was a thought-through robbery where the robber knew there was cash or jewelry in a package.
    But then I read it was in Detroit.

    We’ve all seen these stats before, but there is something wrong with our social system. Approx. 75% of minorities are born with out a providing, live in father. They are raised without discipline and respect for authority. The cost of welfare and what it’s producing is going to destroy America.
    2013. F B I crime statistics involving 15 year old to 34year old Black males.
    Blacks males committed 57.3 % of all Robbery.
    Blacks males committed 50.8 % of all murders.
    Blacks committed 38.8 % of all aggravated assaults.
    Blacks committed 34.1 % of all forcible rapes.
    This group is only 3 % of the total U S population.
    Only 16% of Baltimore teenagers have been raised with married parents
    Meaning 84% of Baltimore teenagers have not been raised with married parents.
    72% of Black children are born illegitimate.
    The incarceration rate in state or federal prison or jail for white men was 736 per 100,000, for black men 4,789 per 100,000,

  22. What else can anyone say?? I has ALL been stated above – over and over!!

  23. Jeff Hall says:

    The only way Democrats know how to Christmas shop.

  24. Detroit, isn’t that where all the real voting fraud was detected this election?

  25. The loyal Democrat constituency is violent!

    Democrat politicians need to own up to who their base really is.

    7 in 10 felons self-identify as Democrats.

  26. The best medicine for all urban thugs is a 45 sub machine gun the Thompson works quite well !

  27. You can’t just say “Fed Ex truck” anymore. There are five or more divisions of Fed Ex that have trucks and stepvans. Say Fed Ex Express or Fed Ex Ground, it is worth the effort

  28. timparker999 says:

    Burn Detroit to the ground and spread salt so nothing will grow there again.

  29. When you absolutely…positively…HAVE to get robbed…

  30. Asian countries for Asians.

    Black countries for Blacks.

    but White countries for everybody?

    That’s genocide.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for Anti-White
