Omaha Man Sentenced for Robbery and Possessing a Stolen Firearm

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Taydor Yoayat, age 20, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today to six years imprisonment by the Honorable Laurie Smith Camp, for robbery and possessing a stolen firearm.  On September 28, 2015, Yoayat pleaded guilty to robbing the Quik Trip at 1704 South 72nd Street.  He also admitted to selling a stolen firearm.  He was ordered to serve a three-year term of supervised release upon his release from prison.

On August 14, 2014, at approximately 11:30 p.m., two men entered the Quik Trip and demanded money from the cash register.  An accomplice held a gun while Yoayat collected the money.  Approximately $173.00 was taken.  Penn and Yoayat were not immediately arrested.  On August 19, 2014, Yoayat sold a stolen .45 caliber handgun to a confidential informant, knowing that the gun had been stolen.  Federal charges have been filed against Tyriss Penn in connection with this case and his case is still pending. 

The case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.
