Acting United States Attorney Robert C. Stuart announced that Edward Sherrod, age 36, of Omaha, Nebraska, was detained at his initial appearance today by Magistrate Judge Michael D. Nelson. Sherrod was recently indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts of interference with commerce by robbery. The penalty on each count is a maximum of 20 years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release.


Sherrod is charged with robbing the Baker’s at 5555 North 90th Street on July 5, 2017; the same Baker’s on July 20, 2017; and the Mega Saver at 1357 NW Radial Highway on July 24, 2017.


The Omaha Police Department Robbery Unit initiated the investigation of Sherrod and then worked in conjunction with the Greater Omaha Bank Robbery Task Force to secure the indictment. The task force was formed earlier this year and is made up of officers representing the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Omaha Police Department, Sarpy County Sheriff’s Department, La Vista Police Department, Papillion Police Department, Bellevue Police Department, Ralston Police Department, Council Bluff’s Police Department and Nebraska State Patrol.


In announcing Sherrod’s charges, Acting U.S. Attorney Robert Stuart remarked that “the indictment and arrest of Mr. Sherrod by the Greater Omaha Robbery Task Force demonstrates the successful coordination of member agencies to arrest the violent offenders in our community.” FBI Omaha Division, Special Agent in Charge Randall Thysse stated “We are grateful for the diligent and collaborative work with the Omaha Police Department Robbery Unit in apprehending this violent criminal in addition to their key participation in the Greater Omaha Bank Robbery Task Force.”
