ST. THOMAS — Devon Davis, 28, of St. Thomas, was sentenced today for his role in the armed robbery of the Gems and Gold Corner jewelry store, located on the St. Thomas waterfront, United States Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert announced.

District Court Judge Curtis V. Gomez sentenced Davis to 61 months in prison for conspiracy to commit Hobbs Act robbery, three years of supervised release, a $100 special assessment, and ordered him to perform 400 hours of community service, according to the release.

On March 5, 2018, Davis pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit a Hobbs Act robbery of Gems and Gold Corner Jewelry Store on St. Thomas, on September 16, 2013. According to the plea agreement, Davis and others conspired to rob the store and brandish weapons to threaten and intimidate store employees, and four of the individuals fled the store with merchandise. Davis rented a room at a guesthouse for four coconspirators prior to the robbery and drove the getaway car after the robbery.

Davis and co-conspirators were ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $31,027.88 to Gems and Gold Corner and $130,322.12 to Dorchester Insurance.

This case is a result of an investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Virgin Islands Police Department and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim L. Chisholm.
