Omaha Man Sentenced for Attempted Bank Robbery
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Cameron Ammons, age 24, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced February 8, 2017, by the Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon for attempting to rob a Centris Federal Credit Union branch. He was sentenced to two years in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release when his incarceration ends. He had previously pleaded guilty to the charge.
On March 4, 2016, Ammons ran through the first door of the vestibule of the Centris Federal Credit Union, 3537 L. Street, Omaha, at approximately 9:20 a.m. As he approached the second door, the door that allows access into the bank, a uniformed off-duty officer that was working there drew his weapon and chased Ammons, who ran from the bank. Other officers were able to catch and arrest Ammons approximately one-half hour later. Nothing was taken from the bank.
The case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
