DALLAS — A federal grand jury in Dallas returned an indictment yesterday charging five violent north Texas men with multiple charges related to violent robberies that occurred in north Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.


Each of the below-listed defendants, mostly from Cedar Hill, Texas, is charged with at least one count of interference with commerce by robbery:


Charles Lampkins, aka “K3” and “Kc,” 20

Justin Gilbert, aka “Slim,” 21

Jahad Givens, aka “Had,” 21

Terance Ross Johnson, aka “TJ,” 21

Jaala Dill, 19, of Dallas


The defendants will make their initial appearances in federal court later this week.

            According to documents filed in the case, between October 2016 and May 2017, the defendants committed a series of at least seven and up to twenty-one robberies at various motels, hotels, and other commercial establishments throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.  The robbery crew performed surveillance of victims and targeted locations and utilized firearms to intimidate their victims, often pointing guns at the heads of tellers and cashiers during the robberies. 


            The robbers often disguised themselves during the robberies by wearing dark clothes, hoodies, and other items meant to conceal their true identity, including a distinguishable fake blue beard connected to a stocking cap.


            A federal indictment is an accusation by a federal grand jury, and a defendant is entitled to the presumption of innocence unless proven guilty.  If convicted, however, each interference with commerce by robbery count in the indictment carries a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.  Lampkins is also charged with two counts of using, carrying, brandishing, and discharging a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. The firearm count carries a maximum statutory penalty of life in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.


The case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Plano Police Department, Carrollton Police Department, Addison Police Department, Farmers Branch Police Department, Grand Prairie Police Department, Arlington Police Department, Lewisville Police Department, Sulphur Springs Police Department, Dallas Police Department, and Cedar Hill Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney P.J. Meitl in charge of the prosecution.
