U.S. Attorney Escalona said, “We appreciate the concerted work of the Hoover, Trussville, and Birmingham Police Departments and the FBI in locating this defendant and gathering the evidence against him.” “We will continue to work with law enforcement partners to keep our communities and the people affected by violent crimes safer, focusing on the most violent repeat offenders.”

“The FBI and our partners are dedicated to bringing these violent offenders like Cameron to justice to make our communities safer. According to FBI SAC Johnnie Sharp, Jr., “Cameron is now in jail and is being held accountable for his actions due to the hard work of committed law enforcement officials.

Cameron entered the Pinnacle Bank in Trussville, Alabama, on November 25, 2020, and ordered a teller to hand over cash. Cameron threatened to shoot the cashier and that he had a gun. Cameron appeared to become frightened and fled the bank empty-handed.

Cameron walked into the Hoover, Alabama, BBVA Compass Bank on Montgomery Highway two hours later. When a teller approached, Cameron handed them a plastic bag he had taken out of his shirt. The teller was informed by Cameron, “I want your money.” Don’t die for a bit of money, Cameron urged as he lowered his shirt to reveal to the teller a wooden-handled gun in his belt that was dark in hue. The cashier handed Cameron $19,100 in US dollars.

Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the focal point of the Department of Justice’s efforts to reduce violent crime, includes this case. PSN is an empirically supported program that has been shown to reduce violent crime. Through PSN, many stakeholders collaborate to identify the community’s most urgent issues with violent crime and create all-encompassing solutions to address them.

To achieve long-term crime reductions, PSN employs a strategy that concentrates enforcement resources on the most violent offenders and collaborates with regionally based prevention and reintegration initiatives.
