Career Offender Sentenced for String of Armed Robberies

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – An Upper Marlboro, Maryland, man was sentenced today to 17 years in prison for committing five armed robberies across Northern Virginia and Maryland.

According to court documents, between January 24, 2021, and March 13, 2021, Jon Karl Mcree Fleet, 62, robbed a Macy’s Store in Springfield; a McDonald’s restaurant in Alexandria; a Subway restaurant in Largo, Maryland; a Papa John’s restaurant in Falls Church; and a Domino’s restaurant in McLean. During each robbery, Fleet brandished a firearm in the presence of employees and demanded money from them. Fleet used a short-barreled shotgun while committing the Domino’s robbery. At the time of the robberies, Fleet was a convicted felon, having previously been convicted for armed robberies, and was thus prohibited from possessing a firearm. Fleet’s lengthy and violent criminal history qualifies him as a “Career Offender.”

Jessica D. Aber, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; Wayne A. Jacobs, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Washington Field Office Criminal Division; Michael L. Brown, Alexandria Chief of Police; Kevin Davis, Fairfax County Chief of Police; and Malik Aziz, Chief of Prince George’s County Police, made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Cristina Stam and Bibeane Metsch prosecuted the case.
