Omaha Man Sentenced for Bank Robbery

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Kevin Brown, age 30, was sentenced in federal court today in Lincoln, Nebraska, for one count of bank robbery.  The Honorable John M. Gerrard sentenced Brown to 33 months in prison, ordered him to pay $84,505 in restitution, and three years of supervised release after he is released from prison.

On June 22, 2018, Brown and at least one other person went into the Great Western Bank, 8380 Old Cheney Road, Lincoln, Nebraska, and demanded money from the employees.  The employees were told to put their hands up and lie on the ground.  One of the robbers was wearing a flesh-colored mask, camouflage doo rag, white gloves and sunglasses.  The second robber was wearing a blue medical mask and a long black wig.  They left the bank with $84,505.  A vehicle used in the robbery was tracked to Budget Rent A Car in Omaha.  Later that day, Brown was located returning the rental car that had been used in the bank robbery.  He had the flesh-colored mask, camouflage colored doo rag, and gloves in his possession that matched what was worn in the robbery. 

The case was investigated by the Lincoln Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Great Plains Violent Crimes Task Force.
