‘Pizza Robbers’ caught


A Knoxville couple was arrested Saturday afternoon after holding up two different pizza delivery people earlier that day.

Caitlin Markli, 21, and Aaron F. Bowling, 21, are charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and are being held in Knox County Jail.


Two Knox County detectives tracked the couple to Concord Skate Park off Northshore Drive just after 4 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 23.

According to KCSO reports, A delivery person for Papa John’s said he went to the Quarry Trails Apartment Leasing office with a pizza shortly after midnight where the couple demanded his money and Bowling threatened him with a gun. The two suspects ran on foot and about 20 minutes later had a pizza delivered from Domino’s to Gateway Apart-ments at Lippencott Street. The delivery person was approached by the couple and they demanded his money. The victim said that Bowling pointed a gun at him until he handed over his cash. Again, both fled on foot.

Markli and Bowling admitted to planning and committing the robberies. Officers got consent to search Markli’s vehicle and found a plastic pellet gun that matched the weapon used in the robberies.

Markli is being held under a $15,000 bond and Bowling under a $6,000 bond.
