Victims of an alleged armed robbery by former Washington cornerback Quinton Dunbar and Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker were paid off to change their testimony to law enforcement, according to a Broward County, Fla. search warrant obtained by the New York Daily News.
The search warrant reveals video footage and Instagram messages that indicate a witness, Dominic Johnson, oversaw the payment of the victims after the May 13 crime. The exchange happened outside of the office of Dunbar's attorney Michael Grieco.
Grieco, who originally slammed the police department for their handling of the investigation, is one of the individuals who was identified in the video. He appeared to be directly involved in the payoff of the victims.
Both Dunbar and Baker were accused of the robbery at a barbeque in Miramar, Fla. Police reports say that they allegedly held individuals at gunpoint while stealing cash and luxury watches worth upwards of $50,000.
The victims gave the police sworn statements that corroborate the evidence obtained. The Daily News says the four victims were paid a combined $55,000, more than the quantified amount in the original robbery.
A statement says one of the four victims was directed "that he didn’t see what he thought he saw” during the day of the alleged crime. Another says he was forced to move out of his apartment in fear of his safety.
The warrant quotes the following message from Johnson as reported in the Daily News:
“We all heading to the lawyer now to get the charges dropped I got them [explective] to sign the papers,” Johnson allegedly wrote. “Got them same [explective] that said they got robbed to say they didn’t … Same [explective] that got robbed I made them fix that sh-t.”
Dunbar and Baker both turned themselves over to the authorities in the days following the incident. They were later released on bond.
On Friday morning, Dunbar requested a motion to be able to attend the Seattle Seahawks training camp. He is currently facing four counts of armed robbery to which he pled not guilty.
Earlier this offseason Dunbar was traded to Seattle from Washington. The 27-year-old spent his previous five seasons all with the football team in D.C.
