OMAHA, Neb. -- A 48-year-old Omaha woman was sentenced to more than a year for helping in a robbery. 

Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Russell announced that Capreeca Jackman was sentenced Oct. 28, 2022, in federal court in Omaha for interference with commerce by robbery.

The Chief U.S. District Judge sentenced Jackman 15 months in prison. After her release from prison, she will begin a 2-year term of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.

Court documents said that between Aug. 19, 2020, and Sept. 3, 2020, Jerome Davis committed a series of five robberies at businesses throughout Omaha.

During the robberies, Davis, whose face was concealed, would either claim to have a gun or weapon or brandish a knife and demand money from the employees and owners of the businesses.

The businesses included the Everest Gas Mart (Phillips 66), on Leavenworth Street, which Davis robbed twice, a Speedee Mart on South 84 Street, the Nu Trend Dry Cleaners located on Center Street, and a Subway sandwich shop located on North Saddle Creek Road.

At several of the locations Davis was observed leaving the area in a white Buick sedan bearing in-transit tags.

On Sept. 3, 2020, Omaha Police officers were dispatched to a robbery that occurred at the Subway restaurant. The suspect, later determined to be Davis, was reported to be armed with a knife. Davis robbed the Subway and fled from the business.

OPD officers observed the white Buick sedan in the area following the robbery and attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle refused, leading them on a vehicle pursuit.

OPD officers observed Davis in the passenger seat and a female suspect, later determined to be Jackman, was driving. During the pursuit Davis threw paper and coin currency and a green cash register drawer from the passenger window of the Buick.

The pursuit continued for several minutes before the Buick slowed, allowing Davis to get out and flee on foot in the area North 20th and Charles Streets. Officers arrested him.

Officers continued to pursue codefendant Jackman in the white Buick sedan until she stopped near North 42nd and Izard Streets where she also was arrested.

During a police interview of Jackman, she confirmed she drove the defendant to the areas of two of the targeted businesses. Jackman provided information that she and the defendant were staying at the Motel 6 on South 84th Street.

Jackman gave consent to search their shared room and to search her white Buick sedan after confirming it belonged to her. Additional evidence was in the Buick including the knife brandished by Davis and the face coverings he wore during the robberies.

Davis was sentenced to 65 months in prison on April 8, and he will serve a 3-year term of supervised release upon his release from prison.

This case was investigated by the OPD and the FBI.
