Three men pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit armed robberies and shootings in Hillsborough, Polk, Pasco, and Lee Counties while dressed as police officers. 22-year-old Reginald Roberts, 28-year-old Nathaniel Keith Carr, and 22-year-old Chrishawn De’Earl Butler each faces a minimum mandatory sentence ranging from 14 to 21 years, up to life, in federal prison. Sentencing dates have not yet been set.
Between December 2020 and April 2021, Roberts (photo above), Carr, Butler and others engaged in a conspiracy to rob suspected drug dealers. During that time, the men engaged in numerous armed robberies in Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk, and Lee counties, some of which resulted in shootings.
While committing these offenses, they impersonated law enforcement officers by wearing black clothing, gloves, and masks, often with law enforcement insignia, or vests with “Sheriff” affixed. In addition, during certain robberies, they drove a black Dodge Durango and white Chevrolet Malibu equipped with blue lights and sirens.
Co-conspirator Jasmine Weber has also pleaded guilty, and is pending sentencing. Indicted co-conspirators Daniel Jackson and Darius Hudson are pending trial.
