A Man from Elizabeth Is Convicted of Multiple-State Armed Robbery.

Elizabeth, New Jersey – According to U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger, an Elizabeth man was convicted on March 8, 2023 for his role in a multi-state armed robbery spree that lasted several months.

Vincent Chan-Guillen, 32, was convicted of three counts of Hobbs Act robbery, one count of attempted Hobbs Act robbery, three counts of brandishing a weapon during a Hobbs Act robbery, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. After a one-week trial in federal court in Newark before U.S. District Judge Stanley R. Chesler, Chan-Guillen was found guilty.

According to court documents and presented evidence:

From August to November of 2018, Chan-Guillen carried out nine armed robberies, five in New York and four in New Jersey. During each robbery, Chan-Guillen brandished a firearm and pointed it at store employees and customers. The liquor stores targeted in the New Jersey robberies were located in Elizabeth, Woodbridge Township, Bloomfield, and Linden.

On each count of Hobbs Act robbery and attempted Hobbs Act robbery, Chan-Guillen faces a maximum possible sentence of 20 years in prison; a maximum possible sentence of life in prison and a mandatory minimum sentence of seven years in prison on each count of brandishing a firearm during a Hobbs Act robbery, each of which must run consecutively to any other prison term. Each count is also subject to a $250,000 penalty.

U.S. Attorney Sellinger credited the investigation that led to Wednesday’s conviction to FBI special agents in Newark, led by Special Agent in Charge James E. Dennehy. In addition, he thanked the Elizabeth, Rahway, Woodbridge, Bloomfield, Linden, Kenilworth, Union, and Lyndhurst police departments, as well as the New Jersey State Police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, New York Division, and the New York Police Department.
