Omaha Man Sentenced For Bank Robberies Committed While On Furlough From Prison

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Albert Dansby, 59, was sentenced in the United States District Court in Omaha, Nebraska for two bank robberies.  The Honorable Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Dansby to an 84 month term of imprisonment for each robbery.  The terms were ordered to run concurrently.  Upon his release from prison Dansby will serve a 3 year term of supervised release.  Dansby was ordered to pay restitution totaling $5,417.50.

Dansby was serving a 100 month sentence for four bank robberies in July 2013.  The Bureau of Prisons placed Dansby on furlough and put him on a bus to transport him from a federal facility in Texas to a half-way house in Hastings, Nebraska.  Dansby left the bus in Omaha and robbed the US Bank, 1700 Farnam, of $1,914 on July 24, 2013.  On August 9, 2013, he robbed the Bank of the West, 1921 Harney Street of $3,502.  Both robberies were done by presenting a demand note requesting the teller’s cash.

Dansby was arrested by the Omaha Police Department on August 11, 2013.  He admitted to both robberies and indicated that the robberies were done to buy crack cocaine.
