Carjacker Sentenced to 168 months in Prison

A man who committed two carjackings in Tulsa was sentenced Thursday in federal court, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.

U.S. District Judge Claire V. Eagan sentenced Kameron Todd Myers, 32, to 168 months in federal prison to be followed by five years of supervised release. In December 2019, Myers pleaded guilty to two counts of carjacking; two counts of carrying, using, and brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, and one count of felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

“Kameron Myers’ decision to engage in a carjacking will cost him 14 years in federal prison. Other criminals should take notice. My office fights for victims and holds violent criminals accountable,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “Assistant U.S. Attorneys Eric Johnston and Mark Morgan, along with the Tulsa Police Department and FBI, should be commended for bringing Myers to justice.”

In his plea agreement, Myers admitted that on June 2 and June 4, 2019, he used force, fear and intimidation during two carjackings. Myers stated that he brandished a pistol and threatened to harm the owners of the vehicles during the crimes. On June 10, Tulsa Police officers found a Glock .45 caliber pistol in the car driven by Myers at the time of his arrest. Because he was previously convicted of a felony, Myers is prohibited from possessing a firearm and ammunition.

The Tulsa Police Department and FBI conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Eric O. Johnston and Mark R. Morgan prosecuted the case.
