Thieves Take 2nd Pizza Car in 3 Days

For the second time in three days, a pizza delivery car was stolen Wednesday while the driver made a delivery, police said.

Romolo Jalbuna was making a delivery about 6 p.m. and had left his keys on the driver’s seat of his car, which was parked in the 200 block of North Oak Street, police said. When he returned a few minutes later, the car was gone, along with a couple of pizzas.

The light blue sedan, which belonged to Jalbuna, had a Domino’s Pizza sign strapped to the top of the car.

On Monday night, another Domino’s driver, Harold Vegugman, was delivering a pizza in the 1700 block of North Hill Avenue about 11:15 p.m. when he was robbed by two men brandishing a revolver, a police report said.

The robbers escaped with Vegugman’s car and $230 of Domino’s money. The car also had a Domino’s Pizza sign on top.


Steve Knight, a manager of a Pasadena Domino’s, said such thefts occur two or three times a year per store. The two recent thefts both occurred in Pasadena, but the drivers worked for different Domino’s outlets.

Management instructs its drivers to lock their cars, Knight said.
