Police received a report of a victim being robbed at gunpoint at the Knights Inn on Bell Road in Antioch Tuesday night, just after 6 PM. The suspect took the victim’s 2001 gold GMC Yukon, and was captured on surveillance cameras, where he can be seen with what appears to be a gun in his hand.
Just after 4AM Wednesday morning, police located the stolen Yukon at 1624 Rebecca Ave, with Labrandeon Brooks seated in the driver’s seat. In the center console was a toy gun, that matches the gun on the video during the robbery earlier.
Labrandeon Brooks denied committing any robbery, however he was still wearing the same pants as seen on the video during the theft. Brooks is charged with carjacking, and is currently held on a $50,000 bond. He just had a vehicle theft charge dismissed by the state on 08/14/18.
