OMAHA – A man who robbed an Omaha, Nebraska bank was connected to the crime, police say, by DNA they discovered on a hat he left at the scene of the crime.
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Robert M. Davis, age 63, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today to four years, ten months’ imprisonment by the Honorable Laurie Smith Camp, for bank robbery. On September 28, 2015, Davis pleaded guilty to robbing the American National Bank at 9009 Maple on October 17, 2014. He was also ordered to serve a three-year term of supervised release upon his release from prison and to pay $965.00 in restitution.
On October 17, 2014, the bank had been locking the front doors due to a number of bank robberies in Omaha. Davis was allowed in, approached the teller window, pulled a gun from his pocket, pointed it at the teller and demanded money. The clerk put $965.00 in the bag. He was connected to the robbery by surveillance video from the bank and from DNA that was on a hat he discarded when he left the area.
The case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.
