HILLSBORO, Ore. (April 11, 2023) — Today, Lenddell Lee Sneed, age 34, pleaded guilty to two counts of Robbery in the First Degree. Deputy District Attorney Alyssa Camp prosecuted the case before Judge Ricardo Menchaca. Judge Menchaca sentenced Sneed to 120 months in prison with three years of post-prison supervision.

Around 1:00 p.m. on February 13, 2023, Sneed approached an employee of the Tigard Bowl in Tigard, Ore., and claimed that a bill was stuck in one of the video lottery machines. When the employee retrieved the key and opened the machine to recover the bill, Sneed pointed an air gun manufactured to resemble a Glock 19 at the employee’s head. Sneed demanded that the employee hand over the money from the open machine and open additional machines in the room.

He was later spotted purchasing new clothes on video surveillance at a nearby Big 5 store.

At approximately 3:30 p.m. that same day, Sneed began using the video lottery machines at Parseh Restaurant in Beaverton, Ore. When an employee approached Sneed about providing proof of his identification, Sneed presented the same air gun that resembled a Glock 19 and instructed the employee to give him the money from the cash register. After the employee gave Sneed an estimated $100-$200 from the cash register, Sneed demanded access to the video lottery machines. When the employee hesitated, Sneed hit the employee in the face. The employee suffered fractured roots in at least three teeth that required dental surgery and tooth extraction.

When authorities arrived, Washington County Sheriff K-9 Radar located Sneed hiding in a nearby alleyway. Officers were able to recover the stolen money and the weapon.

The Washington County District Attorney’s Office acknowledges the work of K-9 Radar, the Beaverton and Tigard Police Departments, Tigard Bowl, Big 5 and Parseh Restaurant staff for their assistance in this investigation.
