make the pickup


Once criminals led by Durant had mutilated Peyton. Now, he waylaid one of them, Rick, and is inquiring some information from him by torturing. Rick:
- His name's Robert G. Durant! I told you where they make the pickup!
Darkman, movie.

What does the phrase in bold mean?
Thank you.

    If someone makes a delivery to you at a particular place (not your home or office), you pick up the delivery (i.e. collect whatever has been delivered.) The action of picking the delivery up is known as the pickup.

    PS, what's the source?
