Bridgeport Twins Involved in Violent Robbery and Carjacking of Ansonia Delivery Driver are Sentenced

John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that ANTOINE SNELL and TREYQUANE SNELL, both 21 of Bridgeport, were sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Kari A. Dooley in Bridgeport to prison terms of 64 months and 72 months, respectively, for committing a violent robbery and carjacking of a food delivery driver in Ansonia.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on December 21, 2016, Antoine and Treyquane Snell, who are twin brothers, and a juvenile male, placed a food order with an Ansonia restaurant to be delivered to a location on Dwight Street.  After the driver arrived at the location, the three males ordered the driver out of his car, attacked him and stole the car.  The victim suffered serious injuries, including multiple broken bones in his face and bleeding in his brain.

On August 14, 2019, the each brother pleaded guilty to one count of Hobbs Act robbery.

The juvenile involved in the robbery and carjacking was charged, convicted and sentenced in state court.

Antoine and Treyquane Snell will serve three years of supervised release when they are released from prison.

This matter was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Ansonia Police Department.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Douglas P. Morabito and Maria del Pilar Gonzalez.
