Beltway Crime Beat: Gregory Evans says he’s guilty of armed robbery; FBI seeks his laughing cohort

According to Evans’ plea agreement, on January 22, 2014, Evans and others robbed a store in the 4100 block of Southern Avenue in Capitol Heights, Maryland. Evans and a co-conspirator forced a store employee at gunpoint to open the cash register. While Evans was taking the money from the cash register, his co-conspirator placed a gun to the head of a second victim and stole $785 from the victim’s pockets.

A little over an hour later, Evans and two co-conspirators entered a liquor store located in the 3300 block of Walters Lane in District Heights, Maryland. Evans brandished a black handgun, jumped over the counter, pointed the gun at store employees and ordered the employees to lay on the ground. A second conspirator brandished a silver handgun and stood by the front door. A third, unidentified co-conspirator jumped the counter and removed money from a cash register. Evans then pointed the gun at one of the employees and ordered the employee to open another cash register. Evans then took the money from that register, opened another cash register and removed money from that register as well. Evans and the co-conspirators then left the liquor store, got into a van and fled the area.

Guilty pleas to food stamp fraud from eight of ten Maryland store owners who were indicted in 2013

According to the indictment to which he pleaded guilty, Nagi owned and operated New York Deli and Grocery, located at 1207 West Baltimore Street, in Baltimore. Through the store, Nagi participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), previously known as the Food Stamp Program. In Maryland, the program provides eligible individuals with an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card called the Independence Card, which operates like a debit card. Recipients obtain EBT cards through the state Department of Human Resources, then use the EBT card to purchase approved food items from participating retailers.

Nagi knew that it was a violation of SNAP regulations to trade cash for SNAP benefits. Nevertheless, from February 2011 through May 2013, Nagi exchanged SNAP benefits for cash at less than face value of the EBT benefits, in violation of the food stamp program rules. Typically, Nagi and kept up to 50 percent of the benefits for himself. To avoid detection, Nagi often debited funds in multiple transactions within minutes of each other. As a result of these illegal cash transactions, Nagi admitted that he obtained more than $1.2 million for food sales that never occurred.
