Omaha Man Sentenced for Armed Credit Union Robbery

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Thomas Woodard, 38, was sentenced today in Omaha, Nebraska, by United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. for the crime of armed bank robbery.   Judge Rossiter sentenced Woodard to 100 months’ imprisonment, a five-year term of supervised release, and ordered Woodard to make restitution in the amount of $27,278 to the SAC Credit Union.

On December 7, 2012, Woodard and co-defendant Joseph Lanckriet, robbed the SAC Federal Credit Union located at 219 S 23rd St. in Plattsmouth, NE and took $27,278 in credit union funds. The case went cold but ultimately Woodard and Lanckriet were apprehended in Sioux City, Iowa, in 2016, after they committed a robbery in that city in 2014.

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