Omaha Man Convicted of Robbery of United States Property
United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Dajuan Sharron was convicted of robbery of United States property following a three-day jury trial in federal court in Omaha before the Honorable Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. The jury returned its verdict on August 28, 2019.
A confidential informant, working with the ATF, had arranged to meet Sharron and two others in order to purchase handguns with money supplied by the ATF. When they met on August 7, 2018, Sharron threatened to shoot the informant if the informant didn’t give Sharron the buy money. Sharron took the $1,500 in cash that the ATF had provided to the informant and fled the area. Sharron will be sentenced on December 6, 2019 and faces up to 15 years’ incarceration and a $250,000 fine.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Neighborhood, a nationwide initiative to combat gun violence and gang activity.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive and the Omaha Police Department’s Gang and Firearms Unit.
