Furloughed Robber Robs More Banks; Gets 7 Years in Prison

An Omaha man who robbed two banks while on furlough from federal prison will spend the next 7 years back in prison.

Albert Dansby, 59, was serving an 8-year sentence for four bank robberies when the Bureau of Prisons placed him on furlough last July.

The feds put him on a bus from the federal facility in Texas to a half-way house in Hastings, Nebraska.

Investigators said Dansby never made it there. He got off the bus in Omaha and robbed the US Bank at 17th and Farnam on July 24, 2013. He got away with $1,914.

On August 9, 2013, he robbed the Bank of the West at 19th and Harney for $3,502. In both cases he gave the teller's a note demanding cash.

According to U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg, Dansby admitted that he robbed the banks so he could buy crack cocaine.
