Pizza Delivery Driver Accused Of Ripping Off Customers

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky -- A pizza delivery driver says he had generous customers, but police say he's a crook.

And as a result, the driver's tips led to his arrest. "We have 22 different receipts, is what they found," said Det. Rodney Underwood, with LMPD's 7th Division.

Metro Police say Joseph Ray seemed to be making a good living delivering pizzas.

"The driver would go, I am assuming that sometime after he left, between there and the store, he altered the receipt," said Underwood.

Police say Ray took home some pretty generous tips, but they didn't come from his customers.

"It was so blatant, I mean, he didn't even do good work," said Underwood.

Police say between May and June of this year, Ray altered nearly credit card receipts from nearly two dozen customers -- and he was pretty sloppy.

"You can see a 5 up under the zero, and he makes this a 10, this, it's hard to tell exactly what that was but he changed that to an 8, this was changed to a 5," explained Det. Underwood.

Ray was employed at the Domino's Pizza on Fegenbush Lane,

"They had done an internal audit, found all of these receipts," said Det. Underwood.

Police say after discovering the discrepancy, managers reached out to Ray.

"From what I'm understanding, they did contact him to come in for an interview, internally, and he refused to come."

WDRB News talked to one of the alleged victims who would not go on camera, but she did tell us that managers from Domino's contacted her about the problem. She says they refunded the money and gave her a gift certificate.

"Whether he's guilty of this or not, I can't say. Innocent until proven guilty," said Dan Richardson, Ray's friend.

Domino's Pizza isn't talking on camera about the arrest, but Ray's longtime friend is.

"Because I know what type of guy he is, I know him and I know that everybody is going to talk bad about him and this is not him," said Richardson.

Richardson says he talked to Ray shortly after his arrest Tuesday night.

"Talking to him - emotionally, he's a mess. And it's really hurting his family a lot too," said Richardson.

Police say Domino's Pizza is now looking at older receipts to see if there are any other Discrepancies in the past.
