Omaha Man Sentenced for Being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Nicholas Gragg, 28, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison by Senior United States District Judge Laurie Smith Camp for being a felon in possession of a firearm. There is no parole in the federal system. Upon his release from prison, Gragg will serve a three-year term of supervised release.

On December 11, 2018, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office attempted to serve an arrest warrant on Gragg.  Law enforcement received information that Gragg was hiding at a local residence.  Officers went inside the residence and made contact with four females, who claimed Gragg was not at the residence.  While searching for Gragg, the officers located a .380 Glock handgun sitting on a couch.  Gragg was eventually located in a crawl space inside the walls of the house, and officers had to use a K9 to get him to come out.  Gragg is prohibited from having a firearm due to a 2018 conviction for possession of a controlled substance.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
