Grand jury indicts two for armed robbery spree

Special to the Enquirer

A federal grand jury returned a 24-count indictment this past week against two Huntsville men accused of committing a string of armed robberies across north Alabama in 2019.

According to the indictment, between August and October 2019, Terrence Warren Jackson, 43, and Deonte Marquish Eddins, 25, allegedly committed 11 armed robberies at businesses across north Alabama.

Jackson and Eddins allegedly robbed Family Dollar, Dollar General, MetroPCS, Verizon Wireless and two GameStop stores. In a span of six days in October 2019, Jackson allegedly robbed Verizon Wireless, Marco’s Pizza, MetroPCS, and two GameStop stores, one of which is in Hartselle.

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 10 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.
