Federal Jury Finds Orlando Man Found Guilty Of Walmart Robberies

Orlando, Florida – A federal jury has found Catrell Ivory (27, Orlando) guilty of two robberies, an attempted robbery, and two counts of brandishing a firearm during a robbery, in connection with a series of armed Walmart robberies he committed in Orlando. Ivory faces a maximum penalty of life in federal prison. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 24, 2019.

According to evidence presented at trial, shortly after midnight on June 2, 2017, Ivory and his accomplices robbed the Walmart Neighborhood Market located at 5559 Clarcona Ocoee Road in Orlando. The store managers were held at gunpoint and more than $74,000 was stolen from the vault inside the cash office. On July 31, 2017, at approximately 3:00 a.m., Ivory and his accomplices robbed another Walmart Market located at 2715 S. Orange Avenue in Orlando. They held a store manager at gunpoint and stole more than $24,000 from the cash office. On August 10, 2017, Ivory and his accomplices attempted to rob a third Walmart Market located at 8801 Conroy Windermere Road in Orlando, but they were unable to get into the cash office.  

During each incident, Ivory and his accomplices carried and brandished firearms and wore masks and gloves to conceal their identities.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, and the Orlando Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Chauncey A. Bratt.
