A man arrested for two carjackings in June pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.
Kameron Todd Myers, 32, 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.
“Gun crimes mean hard time in the federal system. This guilty plea gets us one step closer to a sentencing hearing. This carjacker was prosecuted as a part of our Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “PSN is the Justice Department’s flagship program to reduce violent crime, and it’s making a difference in Tulsa.”
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 are prosecuting the case.
