HOUSTON - Five area men have been ordered to prison for their roles in a string of Houston-area armed robberies, including one in which someone was almost killed, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

 

Reshaun Lee Jenkins, 25, James Daniel Henderson, 24, Ashton Armstrong, 24, Cedric L. Andrews, 44, and Bradley Alexander, 28, had all previously pleaded guilty for their crimes as did Tadarius Robinson, 23, and Joseph Adams, 34, both also of Houston, and Mik Yia Shua Faye Durden, 22, of Livingston, and Travescy Cauley, 27, of Beaumont.

 

Today, U.S. District Judge Gray Miller imposed a total of 255 months in prison for Henderson. He was ordered to serve 51 months for the robberies in addition to another 204 months, which includes 120 months for discharging a firearm during the Wing Stop robbery and 84 months for brandishing a firearm during the robbery of an El Mexsal Taqueria robbery. The sentence for the firearm convictions must be served consecutively to each other and the sentence imposed for the robberies, resulting in the more than 21-year-sentence.

In imposing the massive term of imprisonment, the court noted Henderson had been the shooter in the Wing Stop robbery at 10749 North Freeway on Oct. 2, 2015, during which time an employee was almost killed.

 

Jenkins and Armstrong were both ordered to serve a total of 141 months, while Andrews and Alexander received a total of 33, and 147 months, respectively.  As part of their sentences, Jenkins, Armstrong and Alexander were each required to serve 84 months consecutive to the sentences they received for the robberies for brandishing a firearm during the robberies to which they pleaded guilty.

 

Adams had previously received a 36-month term of imprisonment. Robinson, Durden and Cauley are still pending sentencing.

 

Robinson, Alexander and Armstrong committed an armed robbery of a T-Mobile store located at 10730 Eastex Freeway on Sept. 27, 2015. Armstrong had entered the store brandishing a firearm, while Robinson and Alexander waited in the getaway vehicle. U.S. currency and cellular phones were taken.

 

Three days later, Jenkins, Henderson, Armstrong, Durden and Alexander robbed the El Mexsal Taqueria located at 5797 North Sam Houston. Henderson, Cauley and Armstrong ordered the employees and customers to the ground at gunpoint, while Durden and Jenkins drove getaway cars. Alexander acted as a lookout during the robbery.

 

Robinson, Jenkins, Adams, Henderson, Andrews and Alexander then committed the armed robbery at the Wing Stop restaurant located at 10749 North Freeway on Oct. 2, 2015. Henderson entered the store with a gun drawn. When an did not immediately get down on the ground, Henderson shot him, causing permanent bodily injuries. Andrews and Adams were inside the restaurant during the robbery, while Robinson, Alexander and Jenkins sat outside acting as lookouts and the getaway driver. Alexander disassembled the firearm after the shooting and threw pieces out of the car window as they fled the scene.

 

Finally, Armstrong, Durden and Alexander then robbed Movie Magic at 6520 Airline on Oct. 9, 2015. Armstrong robbed the store at gunpoint. As they fled the scene and Durden drove the getaway car, Alexander fired his gun at a civilian who was chasing the robbers. Armstrong attempted to fire at the civilian but his gun jammed.

 

The case is an example of coordination between law enforcement who are part of the Houston Law Enforcement Violent Crime Initiative<https://www.justice.gov/usao-sdtx/pr/authorities-announce-initiative-targeting-houston-violent-offenders>. The goal is to proactively fight and reduce violent crime across the Greater Houston area by targeting the region’s most violent offenders, augmenting investigative and prosecutorial efforts, and enhancing training, public awareness and education.

The cases are brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program that has been historically successful in bringing together all levels of law enforcement to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.

 

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms conducted the investigation in conjunction with the Houston Police Department and Harris County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Richard Hanes and Heather Winter are prosecuting the case.
