- By Gregory Yee

An Amazon delivery driver was carjacked Monday by a suspect who made off with the van and its contents, police said.

The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. in the 800 block of West 12th Street in San Pedro, said Officer Drake Madison, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

Investigat­ors haven’t 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 off with the van and its contents, Madison said.

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

“We’re committed to the safety of drivers who deliver our packages,” said Alisa Carroll, an Amazon spokespers­on. “We’re looking into the incident and supporting law enforcemen­t with their investigat­ion.”

Further details, including how many packages were stolen, were not available Tuesday.

The delivery driver was not hurt, police said.
