Omaha Man Sentenced for Armed Bank Robbery

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Warren Dwayne Vasser, 45, was sentenced today in Omaha, Nebraska, by Senior United States District Judge Laurie Smith Camp, for the crimes of armed bank robbery and brandishing a firearm. Senior Judge Smith Camp sentenced Vasser to 132 months’ imprisonment, a five-year term of supervised release, and ordered Vasser to make restitution in the amount of $20 to the bank.

On November 15, 2017, Vasser and two others, Warren Copeland and Angelo Douglas, all possessing firearms, entered the First State Bank located at 1005 East 23rd St. in Fremont and took $84,135 in bank funds. After a high speed chase into Omaha, all three were arrested and all but $20 of the $84,135 was recovered. Copeland and Douglas were sentenced to prison terms of 12 and 11 years respectively earlier this year.  

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Fremont Police Department, and the Nebraska State Patrol.
