PHILADELPHIA – Desmond Janqdhari, 29, of Philadelphia, was sentenced on May 2, 2016, to 481 months in prison for armed carjacking, robbery, and firearms crimes. On January 28, 2016, a federal jury found Janqdhari guilty of robbery which interfered with interstate commerce (Hobbs Act robbery), armed carjacking, and two counts of using and carrying a firearm during a crime of violence.

On January 6, 2014, Janqdhari stole a 2005 Toyota Corolla by forcing the car’s owner to surrender her keys at gunpoint.  On January 11, 2014, Janqdhari and co-defendant Keith Williams robbed the Wireless Factory Store at 5618 Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia.  They stole $300 from the store while holding employees at gunpoint.
