BOISE – Camron D. Brown, 21, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was sentenced on Wednesday to 22 years in federal prison for six counts of interference with commerce by robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, U.S. Attorney Bart M. Davis announced. Brown was indicted by a federal grand jury in Boise on May 9, 2017. He plead guilty to the offenses on March 13, 2018. He was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill at the Federal Courthouse in Boise.
According to court records, in early 2017, Brown robbed six different businesses using a gun, holding a total of ten people at gunpoint, and stealing in all almost $7,000. Specifically, Brown robbed the following businesses on the following dates:
- 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.
Brown was arrested after a lengthy investigation. Police eventually interviewed Brown, who provided a false alibi. Police also discovered a social media posting in which Brown bragged about his crimes.
In addition to the prison sentence, Judge B. Lynn 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 through the cooperation of the Boise Police Department, Nampa Police Department, Mountain Home Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program that has been historically successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has made turning the tide of rising violent crime in America a top priority. In October 2017, as part of a series of actions to address this crime trend, Attorney General Sessions announced the reinvigoration of PSN and directed all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to develop a district crime reduction strategy that incorporates the lessons learned since PSN launched in 2001.
