Two Cases Filed Against Seven Defendants Due to Recent F.B.I. Safe Streets Task Force Operations in West County
Martinez, Calif. – The F.B.I. Safe Streets Task Force in recent months conducted successful enforcement operations due to recent violence in Richmond and San Pablo, which resulted in two criminal cases filed by the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office. The DA’s Office worked closely with members of the Task Force, as well as the Richmond Police Department and the San Pablo Police Department, to investigate and prevent illegal activity by suspected gang members in the Richmond area.
On September 21, 2021, three defendants, Rohnell Robinson, Jamel Brown and Levi Mitchell, engaged in an alleged conspiracy as Deep C gang members, to murder a rival gang member in Richmond. The defendants traveled from Fairfield to Richmond to commit the crime. When the defendants were arrested, five firearms were found in their car, including an illegal assault rifle with 100-round ammunition drum magazine.
The defendants will be arraigned before a judge on October 28. The criminal complaint against these defendants contains nine felony counts.
On July 1, 2021, Namari Flentroy attempted to kill a victim in his car on San Pablo Dam Road in San Pablo. Two defendants drove their car to try to block surveillance cameras from Contra Costa County to Solano County to aid Flentroy in attempting to conceal the car after the shooting. In total, three defendants were charged as accessory after the fact due to the assistance each defendant gave to Flentroy, who was charged with attempted murder. The following defendants in the July case have all pleaded not guilty to the alleged criminal complaint:
- Namari Flentroy
- Hasan McCaulie
- Shatiya Henderson
- Teanna Pointer
Both cases are prosecuted under our Office’s Community Violence Reduction Unit and in coordination with the Task Force.
