BALTIMORE — Three Baltimore men were convicted on charges under the Maryland criminal gang statute with one of them also being convicted of accessory after the fact for the murder of Sebastian Tucker Dvorak.
Dvorak was robbed and killed on June 13, 2017, on Boston Street in the Canton neighborhood of Baltimore City while walking home from a night of celebrating his 27th birthday. Malik Mungo, 19, was charged with Dvorak's murder and is awaiting trial scheduled for the end of January 2020.
Officials say a year long investigation on a criminal enterprise known as “500” or “500 L,” led them to crack down on the case and convict 39-year-old Robert Lewis, 34-year-old Keith Worthington, and 30-year-old Harvey Turner.
It was revealed that Lewis provided the gun that was used to kill Dvorak. They say after the murder, he took the gun back and helped get rid of it counseling that gang member to change his appearance to avoid being spotted by police. They say Worthington and Turner were convicted due to their gang participation.
Lewis was convicted of gang participation, accessory after the fact to first-degree murder, illegal transfer of a regulated firearm and drug-related offenses. Worthington was convicted of, gang participation gun and drug-related charges. And Turner was convicted of gang participation and drug-related charges.
“I have said many times that reducing violent crime in Baltimore will require a coordinated effort by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies,” said BPD Commissioner Michael Harrison. “This case is a great example of what can be achieved when we work together. I want to thank and congratulate all the men and women who worked the case for getting these violent criminals off the street, and keeping them off.”
