Four teens are facing armed robbery and felony theft charges for carjacking an Amazon Flex driver in Conyers on Tuesday, Dec. 4, according to the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office. Tony Hester, 17, of Stone Mountain, Keyshawn Tricksey, 18, of Atlanta and Nadeem Farmer, 18, of Lithonia allegedly robbed the Amazon delivery driver while she was dropping off a package on Smokerise East. A fourth suspect, Travail Bennett, 16, was supposedly with the teens but has not been arrested. All four will be charged as adults.
Holding the victim at gunpoint, the teens took the driver’s phone and stole her car which was found the next day. The victim was working as a contract delivery driver for online retail giant Amazon which now offers same-day delivery of household items for Amazon Prime subscribers.
DeKalb County police helped identify the suspects, which led to the arrests. Hester was arrested on Dec. 4, Farmer on Dec. 5 and Tricksey on Dec. 7, according to DeKalb jail logs.
In addition to armed robbery and felony theft, Farmer and Hester face a second count of felony theft and Hester also faces a charge of entering a vehicle with intent to commit a felony.
They remain in DeKalb County jail without bond.
