Feds File Charges in Casper Pizza Delivery Vehicle Robbery
Two men allegedly involved in a robbery and high-speed chase in August are facing federal robbery charges.
Isaac Dorman and Tiedon Zufelt are each charged with a single count of robbery in U.S. District Court. At the federal level, robbery is punishable by up to 20 years behind bars.
The charges were filed Monday afternoon. Dorman and Zufelt were charged at the state level in the days following the event.
According to charging documents, police were called to a Domino's Pizza in Casper after a delivery driver reported that his vehicle was stolen when he went inside to get his next delivery.
When the owner came back out, he saw his Chevy Cruz being driven away. He chased after it when he saw someone in a dark SUV fire three gunshots.
Not long after the robbery, police officers found the stolen Chevrolet in an alley behind University Park School. Officers attempted to order the car's driver, Zufelt, out of the vehicle.
Instead, the complaint says Zufelt asked, "Why?" and started the vehicle before speeding away. Zufelt also hit a patrol car before a pursuit ensued. He allegedly abandoned the vehicle near County Club Road and East 4th Street.
The next evening, police found a 2008 Toyota car parked in the alley behind University Park School. The vehicle had a damaged right door and mirror. Police also found empty .223 shells in the car.
According to the complaint, shortly before the alleged robbery, Dorman told Zufelt, "we should steal that car."
Zufelt also allegedly admitted to stealing a shotgun from Rocky Mountain Discount Sports in the days before the robbery. The complaint says he described grabbing the shotgun off a shelf and running out the door.
Both Dorman and Zufelt also allegedly told investigators that they had stolen cars before.
