Amazon delivery drivers ambushed in San Pedro, packages stolen

An Amazon delivery driver was kidnapped Monday by a suspect who got away with the van and its contents, police said.

The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. at 800 block on West 12th Street in San Pedro, said Officer Drake Madison, a Los Angeles police spokesman.

Investigators have not determined whether the suspect was armed, but the driver told them he feared the suspect had a gun and got out of the vehicle, police said.

The suspect drove away with the van and its contents, Madison said.

Investigators later found the van, but the packages inside were missing, police said.

“We are committed to the safety of the drivers who deliver our packages,” said Alisa Carroll, an Amazon spokeswoman. “We are investigating the incident and assisting law enforcement with their investigation.”

Further details, including the number of packages stolen, were not known as of Tuesday.

The delivery driver was not injured, the police said.
