OMAHA, NE—On August 8, 2017, four suspects who were convicted of a September 10, 2016 robbery of a U.S. Bank location in the Omaha area were sentenced for their roles in carrying out the robbery.

Marcus Warren (23), Steven Muldrew (22), Shaun Murph Jr. (25), and Freddie Johnson IV (24) were arrested on September 10, 2016 after being pursued by the FBI and the Omaha Police Department (OPD) shortly after the robbery occurred. Sentencing was carried out by the Douglas County District Court on August 8, 2017. Warren, Muldrew, and Murph received a sentence of 20—25 years while Johnson was sentenced to 14—18 years. In addition to this robbery, each of these suspects have been connected to other local Omaha bank robberies.

The Omaha Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in conjunction with FBI Greater Omaha Bank Robbery Task Force (GOBRTF) members at the Omaha Police Department Gang Unit and other task force members were instrumental in the successful apprehension of these suspects. “This is a perfect example of what this partnership represents,” Special Agent in Charge Randall Thysse of the FBI Omaha Division stated. “We are grateful for the level of collaboration and integration we have from OPD and all of our bank robbery task force members, because clearly, this is working.” Deputy Chief Mary Newman over the OPD Criminal Investigations Bureau stated, “Our collaborative efforts with our law enforcement partners in cases like these are what makes these outcomes so gratifying and keep our community safe.”
