Man who ‘terrorized’ store employees in armed robberies gets 39 years – Times Herald

WHITE PLAINS – A man convicted of zip-tying employees’ hands and holding them at gunpoint while robbing a New Windsor Rite Aid and a Town of Newburgh ShopRite of more than $26,000 was sentenced to 39 years in federal prison on Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York announced.

Lawrence Brown, 46, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Nelson Stephen Roman after a jury convicted him on March 9, 2017, of two counts of robbery and two counts of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

He had been charged with dressing as a Pepsi deliveryman to steal $5,911 from the Rite Aid’s safes in November 2013 and holding three employees hostage for hours before stealing $20,140 from the ShopRite safes in April 2014.

The robberies “terrorized” employees, said Geoffrey S. Berman,

Two officials identify Texas church shooter – Scranton Times

SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas — A man opened fire inside of a church in a small South Texas community on Sunday, killing 26 people and wounding about 20 others in the deadliest mass shooting in the state’s history, the governor said.

Officials didn’t identify the attacker during a news conference Sunday night, but two other officials — one a U.S. official and one in law enforcement — who were briefed on the investigation identified him as Devin Kelley. They spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the investigation.

The U.S. official said Kelley lived in a San Antonio suburb and doesn’t appear to be linked to organized terrorist groups. The official said investigators are looking at social media posts Kelley may have made in the days before Sunday’s attack, including one that appeared to show an AR-15 semiautomatic weapon.

Authorities said civilian with a gun confronted

FBI, reward target suspect in consulate slayings – El Paso Times

The FBI has launched a campaign to capture a reputed Barrio Azteca leader suspected of ordering the 2010 deaths of three people tied to the U.S. Consulate in Juárez.

March 13 will mark the the seventh anniversary of the slayings.

$100,000 reward is being offered for any information leading directly to Ravelo’s arrest.

FBI app puts 10 Most Wanted in your pocket – Scranton Times

The Federal Bureau of Investigation could use your help. Not with influencing elections — they’ve got that covered — but with good, old-fashioned crime fighting.

The FBI has employed a 10 Most Wanted list since 1950 as a way of enlisting the public’s help in capturing its most dangerous fugitives. Traditionally, the list would be publicized using posters in public places, such as post offices.

The posters feature photos of the alleged villains along with names, aliases, physical descriptions and information on their crimes. The public is asked to contact the authorities if they have information that could help find the bad guys, or girls, on the list. Cash rewards are offered for information that leads to an arrest.

No strangers to technology, the FBI started posting the list on its website, FBI.gov, in the ’90s. Bank robber Leslie Isben Rogge was the first person on the list to be
