Detroit - We’ve all been in a job interview. You sit there, and discuss all your strengths applicable to the position you’re applying for. Like everyone else, Dennis Porter boasted about his achievements... participating in 20 or more robberies and 18 stabbings
Dennis Porter, a 44-year-old resident from Detroit Michigan was arrested Tuesday night after telling undercover ATF and DEA agents that he was willing to steal cocaine from a storage facility in Detroit.
Dennis bragged about his former 30 years of ripping off dope houses, which included at least 20 robberies and 18 stabbings. Porter was unaware the gig was merely a setup. “It’s what we do,” Porter unwittingly admitted to the agents. “We do it all the time.”
According to authorities, Porter and three other men showed up Tuesday night to do the job, two of the men fled. Authorities did, however, arrest Porter, along with 32-year-old colleague, Howard Barkley. Both have been charged with conspiring to possess five kilograms of cocaine, the penalty carrying 10 years to life in prison.
Authorities are pursuing the two men that fled, and Porter’s claims about both the robberies and stabbings.
