Tulsa Man Sentenced To 46 Months in Prison for Robbery

Chief District Judge Gregory K. Frizzell sentenced Robert Chebon Johnson, 46, of Tulsa, to 46 months in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release for Robbery. Johnson must also pay restitution in the amount of $15,991.00.

On May 31, 2017, Johnson and another individual covered their faces and robbed Cash America Pawn at 11th and Memorial with a hammer.  Johnson and the other individual stole jewelry, laptop computers and various firearms.  While running from the business, a citizen began chasing them, firing a shot into the air, which caused Johnson to stop running until the police arrived.       

United States Attorney Shores stated, “Robberies routinely are violent offenses that threaten the lives of employees and customers.  My office is focused on reducing violent crimes and we will continue to work with law enforcement to improve the safety of our community by aggressively prosecuting these cases.”

The charges are the result of an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Tulsa Police Department.  Assistant United States Attorney Dennis A. Fries handled the prosecution of this case.
