Three teenagers were arrested after they allegedly carjacked an Amazon Flex driver in Conyers last week, authorities said Wednesday.
Keyshawn Tricksey, 18, of Atlanta, Tony Hester, 17, of Stone Mountain, and Nadeem Farmer, 18, of Lithonia, are accused of driving up behind the Amazon Flex driver while she was dropping off a package on Smokerise East on Dec. 4, the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
A 16-year-old was allegedly with the teens, but he has not been arrested. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution does not publish the names of minors unless they are being charged as adults.
The four snatched the driver’s phone and took her vehicle at gunpoint, the release said. The vehicle was found the next day.
Amazon Flex allows on-demand contract drivers to deliver packages ordered through Amazon Prime Now, which provides one- or two-hour delivery for household items to Amazon Prime users.
DeKalb County police helped identify the suspects, leading to the arrests.
Hester was arrested Dec. 4, Farmer was arrested Dec. 5 and Tricksey was arrested Friday, according to DeKalb jail records.
All three face armed robbery and felony theft charges, jail records show. Farmer and Hester both 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 jail without bond, records show.
