Convicted felon wanted by the FBI as a suspect in an armed robbery of a Family Dollar

The FBI issued a “Wanted” alert for a Miami Gardens man in a July armed robbery of a Family Dollar store.

The agency didn’t specifically say Jaja Williams, 22, held the gun that backed up a demand for money on July 20 at 19721 NW 37th Ave. Williams, the FBI says, is wanted for his “alleged involvement” in the robbery.

Chain store robberies sometimes get defined as Hobbs Act Robberies, a robbery affecting interstate or foreign business. That changes the violation from state law to federal law.

Williams was convicted in January of carrying a concealed firearm and being a felon or delinquent in possession of a firearm. The FBI says he stands 5-foot-5, weighs 140 pounds and is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts can call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477 (TIPS)
