(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) Justice Dept Report – A former Sheriff’s deputy was sentenced today to 84 months in federal prison for orchestrating and leading a $2 million armed robbery – staged as a legitimate law enforcement search – at a downtown warehouse where more than half a ton of marijuana and over $600,000 in cash was stolen #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.14: Antrim pleaded guilty in March 2019 to a five-count information charging him with conspiracy to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, conspiracy to deprive rights under color of law, deprivation of rights under color of law, and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime:

FBI/ATF/LASD Investgation: ‘Ex-L.A. Sheriff’s Deputy Sentenced to 7yrs in Federal Prison for Leading $2 Million Armed Robbery of Marijuana Warehouse: Marc Antrim, 43, of South El Monte, who formerly was assigned to the LASD station in Temple City, was sentenced by United States District Judge Virginia A. Phillips, who said, “the seriousness of the crime could not be overstated.” The heist, which “sounded like a movie script,” was “tragic” for the victims and eroded “the public’s trust (in law enforcement),” the judge said’

          During the early morning hours of October 29, 2018, Antrim and his co-conspirators dressed as armed LASD deputies and approached the warehouse in an LASD Ford Explorer. Upon arrival, Antrim flashed his LASD badge and a fake search warrant to the security guards to gain entry to the warehouse. To perpetuate the ruse that they were legitimate law enforcement officers, Antrim and two fake deputies sported LASD clothing, wore duty belts, and carried firearms. One fake deputy also visibly carried a long gun to further intimidate the guards into submission.

          At the beginning of the two-hour robbery, Antrim and his co-conspirators detained the three warehouse security guards in the cage of the LASD Ford Explorer. Soon after the guards were detained, a fourth man arrived at the warehouse in a large rental truck, and all four men began loading marijuana into the truck.

          When Los Angeles Police Department officers legitimately responded to a call for service at the warehouse during the robbery, Antrim falsely told the LAPD officers that he was an LASD narcotics deputy conducting a legitimate search. To facilitate the sham, Antrim handed his phone to one of the LAPD officers so that the police officer could speak to someone on the phone claiming to be Antrim’s LASD sergeant. The individual on the phone was not Antrim’s sergeant, and Antrim did not have a legitimate search warrant for the warehouse.

          After LAPD officers left the warehouse, other co-conspirators arrived and the robbery continued, allowing the fake law enforcement crew to steal even more marijuana and two large safes containing over half a million dollars in cash.

          At the time of the robbery, Antrim was a patrol deputy assigned to the Temple City station, but he was not on duty, was not assigned to the department’s narcotics unit, was not a detective, and would not have had a legitimate reason to search a marijuana distribution warehouse in the City of Los Angeles.

          Prosecutors have secured six convictions in this case for the co-conspirators who took part in the raid alongside Antrim.

          Christopher Myung Kim, 31, of Walnut, a disgruntled former warehouse employee, is serving a 14-year federal prison sentence after being found guilty by a jury for his role in planning the heist and making off with $1.5 million in stolen marijuana after the raid. Antrim testified at Kim’s trial, which the judge credited as a significant reason to reduce Antrim’s sentence.

          Kevin McBride, 45, of Glendora, and Eric Rodriguez, 35, of Adelanto, are serving federal prison sentences of six and nine years, respectively, after pleading guilty to felony charges in this case. In a related case, Antrim’s other co-conspirators, Matthew James Perez, 44, of Ontario, Daniel Aguilera, 33, of Los Angeles, and Jay Colby Sanford, 43, of Pomona, are serving sentences of six years’ imprisonment, two years’ imprisonment, and five years’ probation, respectively.

          This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration; the FBI; and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. LASD’s Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau provided substantial assistance to the federal investigation.

          Assistant United States Attorney Lindsey Greer Dotson of the Public Corruption and Civil Rights Section and Assistant United States Attorney Joseph D. Axelrad of the Violent and Organized Crime Section prosecuted this case.Ciaran McEvoy Public Information Officer United States Attorney’s Office Central District of California (Los Angeles) ciaran.mcevoy@usdoj.gov (213) 894-4465

(MCALLEN, Tx.) Justice Dept Report: A man was sentenced Thursday to more than five years in federal prison following his conviction for conspiring to harbor noncitizens and possessing a firearm as a convicted felon #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.02: Noe Garza, 46, from Edinburg, Texas, was sentenced March 24 in U.S. district court to 63 months in federal prison to be followed by three years of supervised release. Garza pleaded guilty Nov. 2, 2020:

HSI Laredo probe results in more than 5-year sentence of convicted felon for harboring noncitizens, possessing firearm: ‘Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) investigated the case in coordination with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Edinburg Police Department’

At the hearing, the court heard additional information related to his criminal record to include prior convictions for aggravated assault and aggravated robbery. The judge noted Garza had been breaking the law since he was 17. She added that she was particularly troubled Garza committed these crimes while having a pending human smuggling case from 2016 for which he failed to appear for sentencing.

“HSI works closely with its law enforcement partners in pursuit of identifying, arresting and bringing to justice individuals culpable of human smuggling,” said Timothy Tubbs, deputy special agent in charge of HSI Laredo. “We will continue to utilize our broad authorities to target those believed to engage in such crimes and who place personal profit ahead of public safety.”

According to court documents, on Feb. 28, 2020, law enforcement conducted a traffic stop on Garza, but he fled the scene. Authorities soon apprehended him, at which time he admitted to being the caretaker of a stash house in Edinburg and helping coordinate transportation of illegal aliens farther north. A search of the residence revealed five noncitizens and two firearms. Law enforcement also found an additional firearm in the area of the traffic stop. Garza took ownership of all three firearms.

As a previously convicted felon, federal law prohibits Garza from possessing firearms or ammunition.

Garza will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility at a later date.

Assistant U.S. Attorney M. Alexis Garcia, with the Southern District of Texas, prosecuted this case.

HSI is a directorate of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), responsible for investigating transnational crime and threats, specifically those criminal organizations that exploit the global infrastructure through which international trade, travel, and finance move. HSI’s workforce of over 10,400 employees consists of more than 7,100 special agents assigned to 220 cities throughout the United States, and 80 overseas locations in 53 countries. HSI’s international presence represents DHS’s largest investigative law enforcement presence abroad and one of the largest international footprints in U.S. law enforcement.
