 HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A federal grand jury returned a 24-count indictment yesterday, charging two Huntsville men with committing a string of armed robberies across North Alabama, announced U.S. Attorney Prim F. Escalona and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp, Jr. 

According to the indictment, between August and October of 2019, Terrence Warren Jackson, 43, and Deonte Marquish Eddins, 25, committed 11 armed robberies at businesses across North Alabama.  Jackson and Eddins robbed  Family Dollar, Dollar General, MetroPCS, Verizon Wireless, and two GameStop stores.  In a span of six days in October 2019, Jackson robbed Verizon Wireless, Marco’s Pizza, MetroPCS, and two GameStop stores.  The indictment also charges the pair with brandishing a firearm and being felons in possession of a firearm.

The Hobbs Act prohibits actual or attempted robbery that affects interstate commerce and that involves the taking of property from another person by means of actual or threatened force or violence. If convicted of a Hobbs Act Robbery, the defendants face a maximum of 20 years in prison. If convicted of brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a violent crime, the defendants face a mandatory minimum of seven years in prison per count, to be served consecutively to any other sentence imposed for the crime.  If convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm, the defendants face a maximum of ten years in prison. 

The FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, assisted by local law enforcement, investigated the case.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Stuart Burrell is prosecuting the case.

An indictment contains only charges.  A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
