Baltimore, Maryland – A federal grand jury has indicted Antonio Johnson, age 49, of Baltimore, Maryland, today on ten counts of Hobbs Act robbery. 

The indictment was announced by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Stephen M. Schenning; Special Agent in Charge Gordon B. Johnson of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office; and Commissioner Darryl DeSousa of the Baltimore Police Department.

According to the 10-count indictment, between January 23, 2018 and February 12, 2018, Johnson robbed ten Baltimore restaurants at gunpoint. Johnson is currently detained.

Johnson faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for the robberies. 

An indictment is not a finding of guilt.  An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings. 

Acting United States Attorney Stephen M. Schenning commended the FBI and the Baltimore City Police Department for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Schenning thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew DellaBetta who is prosecuting the case.
