Robbery Victim Relieved To Hear Of Arrests

Robbery Victim Relieved To Hear Of Arrests

What Miranda Flugge loves doing more than anything is working at Domino's and serving people fresh pizza, but that passion was violently interrupted last week when she and a co-worker were victims of an armed robbery. They were taken at gunpoint and locked in a bathroom. That's when the robbery suspects took all the money they could find and ran.

Now that there are two suspects in custody, Flugge and her co-workers are breathing a sigh of relief.

"Very exciting. This is the first I've heard of that. I've talked to Detective Benson over the last few days with a couple things regarding the phone number," Flugge said.

It was that phone number that the suspects used to make a fake pizza order. After police arrived to the scene that night, Flugge tried calling that number back, but got no response. She thought it was a fake number, but detectives thought differently.

"I didn't think they could trace it back, but it's phenomenal, it's really exciting. My crew's going to be really excited to hear this when they come in," Flugge said.

Flugge says she was very shaken up after the robbery, but then she got angry and was determined to do whatever it took to not let these two men rob her of her passion.

"I love this job, I tell my co-workers I have pizza sauce in my veins. I'm not going anywhere," Flugge said.

She didn't let the fear win, and now she can rest easier knowing her alleged attackers are behind bars.

"It was unfortunate that we did get robbed, but in the long run, it's a good thing. Now, nobody else has to go through this, and they caught them," Flugge said.

After finding out the news of these arrests, Flugge was most excited to tell the driver that went through the robbery with her, hoping that this news would offer him some sort of peace as well.
