LAREDO, Texas – A 26-year-old Houston man been ordered to prison in Laredo federal court after admitting to a three-city carjacking spree, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.


Daniel Farhan Nimri pleaded guilty March 18, 2019, admitting he committed a one-day, three-city carjacking spree that began in Houston and ended in Laredo. 


Today, U.S. District Judge Diana Saldaña handed Nimri a 60-month sentence to be immediately followed by three years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay $8,000 in restitution to one of the victims.


On the morning of April 6, 2015, a woman had just loaded groceries in her van in the parking lot of an HEB in Houston. At that time, Nimri climbed in and pushed the driver out of the van, dragging her for a short distance. He fled and drove to San Antonio.


There, he parked at an apartment complex and waited. Shortly thereafter, he saw another woman walking towards her car. He rushed to her, forced the car keys from her and stole her car. Nimri then drove that car to a truck stop in Laredo.


His next attack was on a man fueling his Ford Explorer. Nimri walked up behind the victim and hit him over the head with an aluminum baseball bat. After the man collapsed, Nimri drove away in his vehicle. Bystanders alerted a nearby policeman who attempted to stop Nimri. He then led several police vehicles on a high-speed chase in North Laredo, eventually crashing the stolen Explorer against concrete embankment. Officers pulled Nimri from the vehicle and arrested him.


Nimri has been and will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.


The FBI conducted the investigation with the assistance of police departments in Laredo, San Antonio and Houston. Assistant U.S. Attorneys April Ayers-Perez, Homero Ramirez and Christopher dos Santos prosecuted the case.
