A Perth man who lured a pizza delivery driver to a vacant house and robbed him has been sentenced to two years' jail after the driver recognised him as a regular customer and led police to his real address.
[Western Australia] court documents from Dylan Jonathon Steven Lovell's sentencing in February revealed the 29-year-old had planned to rob the delivery driver and use the money to buy cannabis.
After threatening the driver with a bread knife, Lovell stole $16 cash and a wallet from the delivery car before running away.
Supreme Court of WA Justice John Chaney described the man's actions as "very poorly thought out" in a manner that would "almost certainly" lead to him being caught.

Note to self: do not try to rob people who already know you by sight. It makes the cops' job too easy.
