Omaha Man Sentenced for Baker’s and Mega Mart Robberies

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Edward Sherrod, Jr., age 37, was sentenced in federal court today in Omaha, Nebraska, for two counts of robbery.  The Senior United States District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Sherrod to 8 ½ years of imprisonment.  She further ordered him to pay $19,444.00 in restitution.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After completing his term of imprisonment, Sherrod will begin a three-year term of supervised release. 

On July 5, 2018, Sherrod robbed the Baker’s customer service counter at 5555 North 90th Street.  He went into the store with what was later found to be a toy gun, nylon mask on his face, and gloves. He demanded money from the clerk and was given $3,607.00.  

On July 24, 2018, Sherrod entered the Mega Mart at 1357 NW Radial Highway, with a black nylon covering his face.  He was carrying a similar fake gun and demanded to know where the safe was.  The safe was closed, but not locked and $26,007 was taken.  Law enforcement officers were able to recover part of the money.  Law enforcement officers were able to catch Sherrod when he returned a rental car used in the Mega Mart robbery.

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