A young Omaha man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for attempting to rob a bank.
U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says 24-year-old Cameron Ammons will serve three years of supervised release after he serves his prison term.
Ammons entered a plea of guilty earlier to attempting to rob a branch of Centris Federal Credit Union.
On March 4th of last year, Ammons ran through the first door of the vestibule of the credit union on 3537 L Street in Omaha. He approached the second door to enter the bank, but was met by a uniformed off-duty officer who drew his weapon and chased Ammons. Other officers apprehended him about a half hour later.
