A guy who broke into the houses of proprietors of doughnut shops was given a 25-year jail term. On July 26, 28-year-old Tony Sullivan entered a plea of guilty to using, carrying, and displaying a handgun during and in connection with a violent offense as well as conspiracy to obstruct interstate commerce by robbery, aiding and abetting, and conspiracy to kidnap.

What Happened?

According to U.S. Attorney Damien M. Diggs, Sullivan received a deserved punishment for his violent rampage between April 2019 and August 2019. The punishment handed down today sends a strong message to anyone who commit crimes out of fear and violence.

According to evidence given in court, the FBI started looking into a string of home invasions between April 2019 and December 2019 that targeted owners and managers of doughnut shops around the metroplex. This criminal activity has been linked to at least nine robberies.

Early in the morning or late at night, the robbers would break into the homes and attack the residents. Baseball bats were used to beat the victims, and they were tied with duct tape.

The FBI said they had concluded the suspects had carried out physical surveillance to learn where the victims lived and when they were leaving their houses since the times of the thefts coincided with the times the victims would have been leaving for work.

On July 8, 2019, a call was made to Euless police stating that a man was stumbling along his street while his wrists were tied with tape. The victim went to the hospital with a gushing head injuries.

The victim said that two suspects were waiting for him when he got home from his doughnut business. He was restrained, bashed with a baseball bat, and told to unlock a safe. The thief took the victim’s car keys, phone.

“The defendant terrorized the metroplex by focusing on a tight-knit group of prosperous company owners. His victims experienced hours of stalking and horror, some to the point of death, and all face a difficult path to rehabilitation, according to Dallas FBI Special Agent in Charge Chad Yarbrough.

The Robberies’ Precise Locations Were Kept A Secret

The Texas Department of Public Safety, the Dallas Police Department, the Garland Police Department, the Grand Prairie Police Department, the Richardson Police Department, and the Task Force on Dallas Violent Crimes of the FBI all participated in the investigation of this case.
