Omaha Man Sentenced for Attempted Bank Robbery

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Javon Murry, age 26, was sentenced in federal court today in Omaha, Nebraska, for one count of attempted bank robbery.  The Honorable Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Murry to 34 months of imprisonment.  Murry was also sentenced to 6 months imprisonment, consecutive to the attempted robbery charge, for violating his supervised release on an earlier case in which he had been convicted of giving a false statement to a licensed firearms dealer.  After completing his terms of imprisonment, Murry will begin a three-year term of supervised release.  There is no parole in the federal system. 

On August 30, 2018, two individuals approached the front door of the Mutual 1st Federal Credit Union, 8073 Blondo Street, in Omaha, Nebraska, dressed in dark clothing with their faces concealed.  When Murry attempted to open the door, and found that it was locked, he and the other suspect fled the area.  Omaha Police officers did a canvass of the area and located the car seen at the attempted robbery.  They learned Murry owned the vehicle.  After searching for Murry, they made contact with him on August 31.  At that time, Murry admitted that he approached the bank with a mask on and went to the bank with the intent to rob it.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Great Plains Violent Crimes Task Force and Omaha Police robbery unit.
