Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis announced today that Allieu Bayoh, 27, of Frisco, Texas, has been sentenced to 35 years in prison by a jury for Aggravated Robbery. Bayoh pleaded guilty to three separate incidents of armed robbery, with the sentence handed down in connection to his multiple offenses.
The charges stem from a series of incidents that began on November 26, 2021, when Frisco Police responded to a 911 call from employees at a Verizon cell phone store reporting an armed robbery. The suspect, later identified as Bayoh, had allegedly robbed the store at gunpoint, taking numerous cell phones, tablets, and a vehicle belonging to one of the victims.
A subsequent traffic stop conducted by Arlington Police on November 27, 2021, led to the discovery of stolen items from the robbery in Bayoh's possession, resulting in his arrest. Bayoh remained in custody until bonding out on March 7, 2022.
However, just two months after his release, on May 16, 2022, Frisco Police responded to another armed robbery at the same Verizon store. Bayoh was identified by a victim in a photo lineup, leading to the issuance of an arrest warrant.
Undeterred, Bayoh struck again on May 26, 2022, robbing an AT&T store at gunpoint. Frisco officers, led by Detective Kristopher Mendoza, swiftly located and apprehended Bayoh at an address associated with him. The subsequent search of Bayoh's person and vehicle revealed stolen electronics and a loaded Glock handgun.
Facing charges for both May 2022 offenses, Bayoh opted to plead guilty and chose to have the jury determine his punishment. After hearing evidence related to the three armed robberies, the jury sentenced Bayoh to 35 years in prison.
District Attorney Greg Willis expressed gratitude for the thorough investigation conducted by Frisco Police and commended the jury for ensuring that Bayoh would be held accountable for his actions, preventing further threats to the community.
