A FedEx employee has been charged as one of four men involved in a gunpoint holdup of a driver for the same company, as he made deliveries in Pleasanton on Wednesday morning.
Detectives from Pleasanton and San Leandro arrested 20-year-old Dominique Hamilton as he arrived for work yesterday at 5:50 p.m. A police report said Hamilton, also known as Dominique Fennoy, was in the same car used in the holdup, a gold Buick sedan, and that a sawed-off shotgun matching the one used in the crime was in the car.
Hamilton's job at FedEx includes loading trucks for Pleasanton deliveries. He's been a FedEx employee for about 18 months.
The report said police are working with FedEx investigators and are following leads to track the remaining three suspects.
FedEx driver Francisco Matute, 32, of San Rafael was making a delivery at 10:45 a.m. yesterday morning at a business in the 4300 block of Hacienda Drive when he was confronted by four men wearing masks and hooded sweatshirts, according to Pleasanton police.
The initial report said one of the suspects brandished a shotgun and ordered Matute to open the door to the cargo area of the his truck. The suspects took multiple boxes from the truck and fled the scene in a gold Buick sedan.
The loss included several computers, police said.
Matute was unable to provide much of a description of the suspects but said he was certain they were black because the skin around their eyes was exposed, according to reports. Matute was not injured during the robbery.
