Camron Brown, 21, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was sentenced to 22 years in federal prison for six counts of robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, according to U.S. Attorney Bart Davis.
Brown was indicted by a federal grand jury in Boise on May 9 of last year. He pleaded guilty on March 13 of this year.
Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill handed down the sentence at the Federal Courthouse in Boise Wednesday.
According to court records, in early 2017, Brown robbed six Boise-area businesses using a gun, holding a total of ten people at gunpoint, and stealing in all almost $7,000.
Records say on:
-February 20, 2017, Brown robbed the Jackson’s Food Store at 897 S. Cole Road in Boise.
-February 20, 2017, twelve minutes after robbing the Jackson’s Food Store, Brown robbed Elements Massage at 7447 Emerald Street in Boise.
-February 21, 2017, Brown robbed the Human Bean Coffee stand at 2100 Broadway in Boise.
-February 25, 2017, Brown robbed the Game Stop store at 2025 12th Avenue in Nampa.
-March 8, 2017, Brown robbed the Continental Loans suite at 10530 Fairview Avenue in Boise.
-March 13, 2017, Brown robbed the Motel 6 at 2323 Airport Road in Boise.
Police eventually interviewed Brown, who they say gave them a false alibi. Investigators say they discovered a social media posting in which Brown bragged about his crimes.
In addition to the prison sentence, Judge Winmill ordered Brown to pay $6,808.26 in restitution, as well as serve five years of federal supervised release. The supervised release will be served after Brown completes his 22-year sentence.
This case was investigated by the Boise Police Department, Nampa Police Department, Mountain Home Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
