Million Dollar Bonds Set for Robbery Suspects

Bond has been set at $1 million for each of the three teenagers accused of a metro crime spree earlier this week. They were in court Friday facing eight counts of robbery; two counts of attempted robbery and the judge.

The accused are identified as 16-year-old Baling Dat, 16-year-old Nhial Wuol and 17-year-old Gach Thichiot. If convicted, they could face one to 50 years in prison on the robbery charges and one to 20 for attempted robbery.

Channel 6 News spoke with the mother of Baling Dat on Friday. She said three of her sons are in jail. She told us she works at a packing house, her husband is in a nursing home recovering from a stroke and there is no one available to watch the kids.

The case involves nine robberies and one attempted robbery across Omaha in a crime spree that began Tuesday night and stretched into Wednesday morning.

Police made the three arrests Wednesday afternoon after a foot pursuit in the area of 47th and Jaynes. A fourth suspect eluded officers and remained at large on Friday.

The next court appearance for the three in custody is scheduled for September 25.
