Three Sentenced for Pharmacy Burglary

With Monday’s sentencing of Channel Lewis, the federal investigation into a June 2020 Louisville, Kentucky CVS burglary has concluded. Along with Lewis, Jean-Pierre Crowdus and Frederick Eaves had previously pleaded guilty in the United States District Court to Conspiracy to Commit Burglary Involving Controlled Substances. Earlier this year, Crowdus and Eaves were both sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment and three years of supervised release. On July 26th, Lewis was sentenced to 7 months’ imprisonment and 18 months’ supervised release.

“While the FBI is committed to protecting the public’s right to participate in legitimate, peaceful protests, once that activity constitutes a federal crime or poses a threat to national security, we will not hesitate to step in,” said Acting Special Agent in Charge Edward J. Gray of the FBI’s Louisville Field Office. “Violent and destructive behavior in our neighborhoods will not be tolerated. As shown by this investigation, know that if you cross the line from expressing beliefs to violating federal law, you will be held accountable.”
