Ninja Robbers Sentenced to PrisonTALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution today secured the sentencing of three Immokalee men, also known as the ninja robbers, in connection to a home invasion robbery. The Honorable Robert Egan, Circuit Judge for the Ninth Judicial Circuit sentenced Henry Contreras, 51, and Andres Perez, 47, to 30 years in prison, and Jonathan Contreras, 30, to 25 years in prison. In May, a jury found the three defendants guilty of all charges, including home invasion robbery, kidnapping, carjacking with a firearm and armed burglary of a conveyance.
In 2014, the defendants broke into a central Florida mansion, where the defendants robbed and zip-tied the residents and stole the victims’ car. A couple weeks after, authorities caught Johnathan Contreras and Perez cutting a hole in a fence that bordered another large residence. Authorities then arrested the defendants before they could invade an additional home. Two days later, law enforcement arrested Henry Contreras as the getaway driver.
Attorney General Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution prosecuted this case.
