Do business with ‘Dopey’ and you may end up dead.

That’s the warning for anyone crossing paths with wanted high-violent gang member, Armando Rodriguez-Willis.

Department of Corrections officers say ‘Dopey’ is his street name.

He was convicted of first degree burglary where a guy he recruited to help break into a home in Kennewick to collect money ended up getting shot dead, in the head, at point-blank range.

Now, ‘Dopey’ is breaking probation for the robbery in Benton County.

He’s also been busted for a bunch of domestic violence assaults, disorderly conducts and hit and run.

He’s 27 years old.
