Omaha Man Sentenced for Bank Robberies
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Kevin M. Lee, age 38, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced to four years, nine months’ imprisonment by the Honorable Lyle E Strom, after having previously pled guilty to two bank robberies. He was also ordered to pay $1,400.00 in restitution and will be required to serve a three year term of supervised release after his release from prison.
On November 17, 2014, Lee went into the American National Bank at 1412 Harney Street, Omaha, and passed a note to the teller demanding $500. On November 18, 2014, he went to the U.S. Bank at 222 South 72nd Street, Omaha, and passed a similar note demanding $900. Law enforcement had contact with him on November 20 on a matter unrelated to the robberies. Agents were able to identify him in connection with the crimes based in part on tattoos on his fingers that matched surveillance pictures of him from the U.S. Bank robbery.
The case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.
