SALISBURY, Md.- A Wicomico County judge sentenced a Salisbury man to 16 years in prison after an armed robbery during a pizza delivery service.

Police said on May 29, 2017, 38-year-old Jerry Allen, along with two juveniles, ordered a pizza to be delivered at a vacant home in the 1000 block of John Street in Salisbury.

According to officers, when the delivery driver arrived, one of the juveniles attacked with a wooden rod while Allen demanded that the driver to “give them the money.” The victim handed the money over to one of the juveniles while Allen made several references to obtaining a gun. Then, the victim tackled Allen and was able to escape to call 911.

The victim met officers of the Salisbury Police Department and later identified Allen. When officers located Allen, they also found the two juveniles and several pizza boxes matching the original order. DNA testing confirmed the victim’s blood on Allen’s hand.

On Thurs., March 22, Judge Kathleen L. Beckstead, Circuit Court for Wicomico County, sentenced Allen to 16 years in the Maryland Division of Corrections after a Wicomico County jury convicted Allen of robbery with a dangerous weapon and related offenses on Jan. 16, 2018.

Court records show Allen has an extensive criminal history of assaults and other violent offenses dating back more than 20 years.
