TikTok Star Chozen Terrell-Hannah, 22, was arrested in connection to a series of robberies after the FBI identified his shoes in TikTok videos. Terrell-Hannah was an inspiring social media influencer.
The Michigan resident could be seen dancing in the videos while sporting Nike sneakers with red spots on them. Fox 2 Detroit reported that the shoes match those worn by an armed robber who had held up four stores from December to February.
An anonymous tip led agents to the “ChozenWrld” TikTok page. The page boasts more than 149,000 followers 1.6 million likes.
According to reports, a 7-Eleven was allegedly held up twice by Terrell-Hannah. The station claimed that he also robbed a gas station and a smoke shop.
In each case, the robber was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, a mask, and white shoes. Witnesses noticed pink hair visible under the mask during the last robbery, said the Detroit News.
The social media star matched up with witnesses’ descriptions, authorities told the outlet, after they watched dozens of his social media videos. With partially dyed pink hair visible, the suspect is seen in one video singing a song and dancing.
Cell phone data showed Terrell-Hannah in the area of the robberies after the FBI obtained a search warrant and tracked the robbery suspect. They located a Glock gun and unique shoes during a raid of his residence.
The TikTok influencer allegedly admitted to the robberies after his arrest on Wednesday. He faces charges of affecting interstate commerce and possessing a firearm during a violent crime. The Detroit News said Terrell-Hannah is awaiting a hearing in federal court in Detroit.
