PONTIAC (WWJ) - Two young men are behind bars after police say they called for a pizza, then robbed the delivery guy.

The victim told Oakland County Sheriff's deputies that he was robbed at gunpoint shortly after 8:30 p.m. Monday, when he got out of his car outside a home on Cameron Street in Pontiac.

The driver, a 43-year-old Pontiac man, said the robbers took $300, along with several pizzas.

Deputies with a tracking dog followed fresh footprints in the snow that led to another house, in the 400 block of Emerson Ave., where investigators say they found suspects matching the description given by the victim. 

The homeowner gave deputies consent to search the house and a silver semi-automatic pistol with an extended magazine was found, which matched the weapon the victim had described, sheriff's officials said.

The two suspect, both 18 years old from Southfield, were arrested and lodged in the Oakland County Jail.

Their names are being withheld pending an arraignment on expected armed robbery charges.
