United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Darrell L. Manley, 19, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for his involvement in numerous robberies, some involving firearms, occurring between July and September 2019. United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Manley to 18 years in the Bureau of Prisons. There is no parole in the federal system. Upon his release from prison, Manley will begin a 5-year term of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay $1,690.45 in restitution
On July 22, 2019, Manley entered the KwikShop at 3222 Q Street in Omaha with a long gun and forced everyone to the ground. He took money from the register and a pack of cigarettes. During the robbery, he threatened the clerk.
On September 12, 2019, Manley robbed four businesses in Omaha. At 12:39 am, he robbed the Bucky’s at 107 South 40th Street by walking in with what the clerk believed to be a gun and struck him in the face with it. After demanding the registers be opened, he ran out the door with cash. At 6:47 am, he entered the Bucky’s at 6003 Center Street, and struck that clerk in the face with the same gun. At 9:26 am, he robbed the Anderson B.P. at 15635 West Dodge Road by entering the store, banging on the register, and demanding the register be opened. Manley grabbed the money and fled. At 9:23 pm, he entered the Casey’s General Store at 1202 South 13th Street. One of the clerks saw a gun and heard Manley demand money. Another employee unlocked the register. Manley grabbed money and left the store.
Manley continued his spree by again robbing the Bucky’s at 6003 Center Street in Omaha on September 16, 2019. He entered the store, pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded she open the register. She did so. He jumped on the counter, grabbed cash, and left the store.
Two days later, on September 18, 2019, he robbed the Casey’s General Store located at 1202 South 13th Street in Omaha. He entered the store, pointed a tire iron at the clerk, jumped the counter and demanded the registers be opened. He grabbed cash and left the store.
Manley’s face was concealed or partially concealed during each of the seven robberies. The Omaha Police Department Robbery Unit and Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Great Plains Violent Crime Task Force used shoe prints, fingerprints, DNA and video to tie Manley to this string of robberies.
This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
