Federal agents made the break in the case by combing through dozens of videos on Terrell-Hannah’s TikTok account, ChozenWrld, after getting a tip. The account had 149,000 followers with one of his videos garnering millions of likes.
The first alleged robbery was reported on Dec. 1 at a Commerce Township 7-Eleven, with the suspect carrying a handgun. The other crimes reportedly took place on Jan. 13, Jan. 26 and Feb. 1, with witnesses describing the same outfit each time. For the latter robbery, which occurred at an Old West Tobacco store, investigators noticed the suspect had pink or red hair peeking out from his black ski mask, which Terrell-Hannah has.
The DOJ was able to explain away the reason why some witnesses described Terrell-Hannah as being possibly a White male.
The FBI task force officer said in the complaint against Terrell-Hannah: “Based on my training and experience, I believe due to [Terrell-Hannah’s] light complexion, the victims of armed robberies, observing him under the circumstances and wearing the clothing described above, could describe him as either White or Black. … These shoes are similar in appearance to the shoes worn in the above referenced armed robberies.”
