Released Video Footage Shows Armed Robbery Of Florida Amazon Delivery Truck Driver

Two Florida men are now in police custody after a deliver truck driver was robbed at gunpoint earlier this month. A video of the incident was taken on dashboard camera and released by Orange County Sheriff’s Office, showing 22-year-old Arkimase Divinard and 23-Year-old Joel Junior Aime before their arrests, Law And Crime reports.

After completing a delivery at an apartment complex, an Amazon driver noticed Aime near the driver’s side door of his company-issued van. Thinking nothing of it, he enters the vehicle from the rear sliding door on the passenger’s side, and is followed inside by Divinard.

“[Divinard] told the delivery driver he had a gun and wasn’t afraid to shoot him,” the affidavit says. “[Divinard] then pointed a silver handgun at the delivery driver and demanded his belongings.”

With a handgun pressed against his neck, Divinard demands the victim to tell him the phone’s passcode and his debit card’s pin. He then takes around 10 packages and flees the scene. As the robbery occurred, a witness ran to flag down police. During the arrest, Divinard became enraged, and caused self-inflicted harm while in custody, but his partner was arrested without incident.

“The two suspects are back behind bars where they belong, facing charges of robbery with a firearm,” the now deleted Orange County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post said. “With a criminal history that includes 85 felony charges and 11 felony convictions between them, we hope they will stay locked up for a long, long time.”
