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

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Manazheega Cleveland, age 20, was sentenced today by United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. to 54 months’ imprisonment for an armed robbery of the Pony Express gas station on the Omaha Nation Indian Reservation. Cleveland will also be on supervised release for a period of three years when he is released from prison.  

When he was 18 years old, Cleveland entered the Pony Express gas station, along with a juvenile who brandished a shotgun at the store clerk, and demanded cash from the register. The store clerk complied and the two were able to get away on foot with just over $1,300. Cleveland will also be required to pay restitution for the stolen amount.

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