Crime Files: Dewit Cannon


22-year old Dewit Cannon is a wanted man.  Springfield Police say he ordered take out, but had more in mind than just pizza.

When the delivery person showed up to the address on Leyfred Terrace.

“Mr Cannon was waiting with a couple friends. When the delivery person got out with the food, Cannon sprayed him with mace and his friends jumped in and started beating him up. Then Cannon took the food, his wallet and all the money he had,” explained Springfield Police Sargent John Delaney.

But police say Dewit Cannon wasn’t done.

“Mr Cannon thought it would be a good idea to come here to the South End Pizza to buy beer and used the credit card from the driver, but they have a great surveillance here, good feed,” said Delaney.
