Surveillance cameras at a Mobil gas station in Dania Beach, Florida captured images of two men committing armed robbery with a firearm against three victims. So far no arrests have been made.
The surveillance video begins with the two men exiting a white, newer model dodge charger. The men are seen wearing hoodie style sweatshirts with the hoods over their heads. The men are also seen wearing handkerchiefs over their faces to further conceal their identities.
The surveillance video clearly shows the men ordering the victims around as the hold guns to their bodies. The men are fast moving, aggressive, and go right for the register.
As a Fort Lauderdale criminal defense lawyer, I have no doubt in my mind that these men will get at least 30 years each in prison if every convicted.
Crimes like these are prosecuted very aggressively and are subject to Florida’s 10-20-LIFE law, since they involved the use of guns in the commission of a felony.
Frankly, I have no respect for criminals like these. Armed robberies with firearms involve absolutely zero use of the human brain and are usually perpetrated by scum bags who are too lazy to get real jobs.
Instead, the rob the rest of us at gun point for our hard earned things. In the process, people sometimes get killed.
I’m sorry, I may be a very aggressive criminal defense lawyer, but I have no pity for animals like these.
The idiots that these guys are, they actually took their victims cellular phones.
As I type this, I have zero doubt in my mind that police detectives have already issued emergency subpoenas to cellular providers to obtain the call logs and GPS data for the phones.
This information is extremely valuable because it will either lead police directly to these idiots or to people that know them.
Even if these clowns had the afterthought to dump the phones, police may get a brake by pinpointing another location that the men drove to where there are additional surveillance cameras or witnesses that may remember the men or who may be able to identify them by clothing.
The only way these morons could save themselves from incriminating GPS technology would have been to either remove the phone batteries or discard the sim cards.
I put my money on their stupidity. I bet the victims’ cell phones lead police directly to where these shit for brains live.
I hope the police catch them and I hope prosecutors lock them away for a long period of time.
