In March 2021, officers with the Omaha National Law Enforcement Services responded to a residence in Macy, Nebraska, on a report of a fight. Officers contacted the victims who advised that they had given two men a ride from Sioux City, Iowa, back to Macy, Nebraska, and when they arrived at the residence, the men assaulted them and robbed them at knifepoint, taking a cell phone and the keys to the vehicle. Witnesses identified the robbers as Runningshield and Thomas.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
