Pair Committed a String of Armed Robberies of Gas/Convenience Stores in DFW Metroplex in June 2014
DALLAS — Two Fort Worth, Texas, men who were convicted at trial last year on an array of federal charges stemming from their armed robberies of several Murphy Oil gas/convenience stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex in June 2014, were sentenced today, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.
Maurice Lamond Davis, 28, was sentenced to 608 months in federal prison, and Andre Levon Glover, 21, was sentenced to 498 months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Reed C. O’Connor.
Both were convicted on one count of conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery and two counts of using, carrying, and brandishing a firearm during and in relation to, and possessing and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of, a crime of violence. In addition, Glover was convicted on four counts, and Davis on two counts, of interference with commerce by robbery. Davis was also convicted on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The two committed armed robberies of Murphy Oil USA stores located at: 170 N. Interstate 35E in Lancaster, Texas, on June 16, 2014; 3102 W. Wheatland Road in Dallas on June 21, 2014; 950 N. Walnut Creek Drive in Mansfield, Texas, on June 22, 2014; and 100 Walton Way in Midlothian, Texas, also on June 22, 2014. They used a sawed-off shotgun to rob these stores at gunpoint and steal thousands of dollars of cigarettes from each of the locations and nearly $10,000 in cash from one of the locations. After the last robbery, they led police on a high-speed chase before being arrested.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Alvarado, Dallas, Lancaster, Mansfield, and Midlothian Police Departments investigated the case.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys John Kull and Brian McKay prosecuted the case.
