A 30-year-old Omaha man who used a gun to threaten employees of three Omaha area businesses earlier this year to take a total of $780 will be going to federal prison for more than 16 years.
The office of United States Attorney Joe Kelly reports Justin McCoy will begin four years of supervised released after serving his prison term.
Federal prosecutors say McCoy brandished a firearm when he used the drive-through at a Scooter’s in Papillion, stealing $550 January 13th.
The next day, McCoy robbed a Valentino’s Pizza in Omaha, again threatening employees with a gun. He took $75. That same day, McCoy robbed a Bucky’s in Omaha, using a gun to get $155.
Kelly says criminals using firearms will not be tolerated and will be aggressively pursued by federal authorities.
