Two Men Charged With Armed Robbery Of An Inver Grove Heights Business

United States Attorney Gregory G. Brooker today announced a superseding indictment charging JAMAAL MARQUIE MAYS, 33, and JAQUON KESHAWN MOMAN, 25, with robbery and firearms charges.

According to the indictment, on August 17, 2017, MAYS and MOMAN attempted to rob a Verizon Wireless store in Inver Grove Heights, Minn. while brandishing a firearm in the presence of a store employee. On July 10, 2017, MOMAN and another individual stole cash from a Metro PCS store in Minneapolis, Minn.

Because he is a felon, MAYS is prohibited under federal law from possessing any type of firearm at any time.

The Hobbs Act, passed by Congress in 1946, allows federal prosecutors to prosecute individuals who commit armed robberies of businesses engaged in interstate commerce.

This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Inver Grove Heights Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorney David P. Steinkamp is prosecuting the case.
