As Brian Lewis stewed in jail, he began plotting his next crime.
In July 2015, Lewis and Donny Campbell robbed and carjacked a Domino’s pizza delivery driver at gunpoint, according to the Greenville, S.C., sheriff’s department. This January, deputies learned of threats communicated by Lewis out of the Greenville County Detention Center to members of the Piru Bloods gang, according to Fox Carolina.
The sheriff’s department believes multiple Greenville County gang members planned to kill the key witness to a robbery in order to avoid a conviction. Four documented members of the gang, all men between the ages of 23 and 32, were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
The family of the witness is being provided round-the-clock protection by deputies.
When Lewis and Campbell fled the original robbery scene, the pair reportedly rammed two patrol cars when deputies approached them. Campbell was arrested while Lewis ran. It took an air patrol and a K-9 unit to finally apprehend him.
Lewis was sentenced to 32 years in prison after being found guilty of charges connected to the armed robbery.
