2 Found Guilty In Violent Robbery

Lawrenceville, GA – On December 6, 2017, Jarvis and Jason Tucker were sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for a violent home invasion in 2011.

In addition to the life sentence, each man will serve another 245 years in prison. The men were accused of being members of an organized home-invasion crew.  On September 14, 2011, they robbed the owner of 12 Atlanta jewelry stores, and his family, at their residence in Gwinnett County, GA.

After the jeweler had returned home and exited his vehicle, a masked man with a shotgun approached him along with two other armed masked men. They forced the jeweler into his home.

The jeweler, his wife and his four children were threatened at gunpoint. The jeweler and his wife were then bound with duct tape. One of the suspects fired a .38 caliber gun into the wall. The suspects then escaped.

According to investigators, the case went cold until the summer of 2015. A federal prison inmate in Arizona contacted Gwinnett County Police and provided them with the names of the suspects involved. Gwinnett police then coordinated with the FBI and discovered the two Tuckers and another subject identified as Darden Walker had tried to commit a similar home invasion.

The cooperating inmate told investigators that the group placed GPS tracking devices on the jeweler’s vehicle. In January 2016, an undercover FBI agent posed as an employee of an elderly jeweler. The FBI agent met with Jarvis and Jason Tucker. He told the men he wanted to hire a crew to rob his employer of a large amount of jewelry.

The subjects met the agent the next night. Police and FBI agents then went to the area and arrested Jarvis and Jason Tucker and Darden Walker. The subjects were dressed in black and had two loaded handguns.
