BEAUMONT, Texas – A 20-year-old Port Arthur, Texas man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Texas announced U.S. Attorney Joseph D. Brown today.

             

Jamon Roshaud Brooks was named in a two-count indictment charging him with Hobbs Act robbery and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.  The indictment was returned by a federal grand jury on May 1, 2019.

 

The indictment alleges that on Dec. 21, 2018, Brooks brandished a firearm while robbing a business located at 2150 Stillwater Drive in Beaumont, Texas, which engaged in, and affected interstate commerce in violation of the Hobbs Act.   

 

If convicted, Brooks faces up to 20 years in federal prison for the robbery and seven years consecutive for brandishing a firearm.

 

This case is being investigated by the Beaumont Police Department, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Port Arthur Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell James.

 

It is important to note that a complaint, arrest, or indictment should not be considered as evidence of guilt and that all persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
