Tulsa Man Pleads Guilty to Five Armed Robberies
A man pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court to robbing five Tulsa area businesses, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.
John Michael McIntosh, 22, of Tulsa, pleaded guilty to five counts of obstructing, delaying and affecting commerce by robbery and three counts of carrying, using and brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.
“Armed and dangerous criminals like John McIntosh threaten the prosperity and safety of our community. Conscientious, hard-working Oklahomans go to work every day to support their families, and they should not have to go to work with the fear of having a gun pointed in their faces,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “Through the Justice Department’s Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative, we prioritize the prosecution of violent offenders, like John McIntosh, so that our neighborhoods and business community can prosper.”
In his plea agreement, McIntosh admitted that he robbed a Kentucky Fried Chicken in Sand Springs on Feb. 17; a Waters Liquor Store in Tulsa on Feb. 19; and a Liquor Mart in Tulsa on Feb. 21. He further admitted to robbing two QuikTrips, located in Tulsa and in Sand Springs, on Feb. 23. In all the robberies, McIntosh threatened employees while brandishing a handgun.
The Sand Springs Police Department, Tulsa Police Department and FBI are the investigative agencies. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Mark R. Morgan and Robert T. Raley are prosecuting the case.
