Indianapolis Man Sentenced for Pharmacy Robbery

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Senior U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Daewoo Robertson, 19, today to 9 years in federal prison to be followed by 5 years of supervised release. Robertson was also ordered to pay $61,154.00 in restitution. Robertson previously pleaded guilty to a Hobbs Act robbery; that is, robbing a business involved in interstate commerce, brandishing a firearm during the robbery, and robbery involving controlled substances. 

On October 28, 2018, at approximately 9:33 am, Robertson, Billy Adell and Otis Brown, III robbed the CVS Pharmacy, 1701 Galvin Road South, Bellevue, Nebraska at gunpoint.  Robertson, Adell and Brown are from Indianapolis and drove to Bellevue to commit the robbery.  Adell was the driver.  Robertson and Brown went into the store.  Robertson was armed with a Glock .40 caliber handgun that he pointed at employees and a customer while he and Brown zip-tied them.  Robertson and Brown fled the store in Adell’s waiting vehicle, with $60,196.50 in controlled substances.  They were caught shortly thereafter when their car was stopped.  Officers searched the car and found the gun, zip-ties, and a garbage bag with the stolen drugs.  Once the drugs leave the store, they cannot be taken back and resold by CVS and have to be destroyed.  

Adell and Brown are pending trial currently set for August 6, 2019.

The FBI Great Plains Violent Crime Task Force, comprised of FBI agents, Omaha Police Department detectives, Nebraska State Patrol Investigators and Papillion Police Department Detectives, is responsible for the investigation of the robbery.  The task force was assisted by the Bellevue Police Department.
