MIAMI – On April 10, the last of four defendants pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit robbery, robbing several people who had listed electronic items for sale on the online marketplace application OfferUp and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon. 

Jordan Denzel Lewis’s co-defendants, Tyrell Brion Bouie, Anthony Christopher Diggs Jr., and Johntaevious Henry Johnson pleaded guilty earlier in the case to charges of conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, and using a firearm during a robbery. 

From September to October 2022, Lewis, Bouie, Diggs, and Johnson contacted victims who had posted electronics for sale online through OfferUp. After contacting the victims and pretending to be interested in purchasing the electronics, Lewis and his co-defendants would meet the victims at an agreed public location such as a public parking lot or restaurant, and instead of purchasing the items, Lewis, Bouie, Diggs, and Johnson would rob the victims. On some occasions, they brandished guns or used violence during the robberies.

Markenzy Lapointe, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida and Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey B. Veltri of the FBI, Miami Field Office made the announcement.

FBI Miami investigated the case with assistance from the Plantation Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Deric Zacca and Vanessa Bonhomme are prosecuting it.
