Bridgeport twins linked to robbery, carjacking of Ansonia delivery driver get prison
BRIDGEPORT — Bridgeport twins who were linked to the violent robbery and carjacking of an Ansonia delivery driver back in 2016 were sentenced to federal prison Friday, officials said.
Antoine Snell and Treyquane Snell, both 21 of Bridgeport, were sentenced in Bridgeport federal court to serve 64 months and 72 months in prison, respectively, a news release from the office of U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham said.
The charges against the brothers stemmed from an incident on Dec. 21, 2016.
Antoine Snell, Treyquane Snell and a juvenile boy placed a food order with an Ansonia restaurant on that date to be delivered to a location on Dwight Street.
When the driver showed up, the trio ordered the driver out of his car, attacked him and stole the car, the news release said. The driver suffered serious injuries, including multiple broken bones in his face and bleeding in his brain.
On Aug. 14, 2019, the brothers each pleaded guilty to one count of Hobbs Act robbery.
When the twins are released from prison, they will each be on supervised release for three years.
The juvenile involved was charged, convicted and sentenced in state court.
