On Friday April 17, 2020 UPS was making a delivery of a package to an address on the 500 block of Little Gloucester Road. The resident was expecting a package but it could not be located on the truck. The UPS delivery driver left the residence and entered a nearby neighborhood when two vehicles surrounded his truck so that the UPS vehicle was boxed in. A male and a female, identified as the residents Kyree Shaw and Diana Bailey from the 500 block of Little Gloucester Road, approached the driver and demanded the package that was suppose to have been delivered. Once again the UPS driver stated the package was not on the truck. Mr. Shaw then threatened that he was going to get a gun and returned to his vehicle. Mr. Shaw appeared to put an object in his waistband and returned to the delivery truck. Fearing for his life, the delivery driver allowed Mr. Shaw to walk onto his delivery truck and search for the missing package. Once again the package could not be located and Mr. Shaw and Ms. Bailey left the area.
Officers then responded to the area of Little Gloucester Road and located the suspects and their vehicles at their residence. While officers were conducting interviews a second UPS delivery truck arrived on location. The second UPS delivery driver was in possession of the package that was supposedly in the original UPS truck.
The UPS driver was not injured and a firearm was not located.
