From the Jacksonville Police Department:

JACKSONVILLE, TX - On October 14, 2012 the CJ’s Quick Stop in Jacksonville was robbed at gunpoint. On October 22, 2012,  J&J’s Food Store was robbed twice at gunpoint, once in the early morning and again later that night by the same suspect.

As a result of the ongoing investigations into armed robberies, drug and weapons sales and other violent crimes in Jacksonville by the Safe Streets Task Force Kendall Deshun Lucas, 26, was identified as the robber and charged in federal court for Hobbs Act violations which include armed robbery. Lucas is a local Jacksonville man who was well know to police officials and has a previous criminal history.

On October 1, 2013 Lucas was sentenced to 20 years in federal confinement with an additional three years of supervised release when he completes his sentence.

Federal prosecutors were unable to make a press release due to the ongoing government shutdown and a lack of support personnel.

City officials, to include Police Chief Reece Daniel are well pleased with the sentence and with the results of the cooperation with federal officials. Several more suspects are awaiting sentencing for crimes committed in Jacksonville in the past two years and officials fully expect to see more arrests of career criminals in the near future.
