LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A United States District Court Judge has sentenced an Omaha man to 180 months of imprisonment for robbery and brandishing a weapon.

On Friday, Judge Robert F. Rossiter announced the sentencing of 23-year-old Delyahn R. Hill of Omaha. Rossiter sentenced Hill to 96 months imprisonment for the robbery count and 84 months on the brandishing count.

Hill will serve a 5-year-term of supervised release once his sentence is served.

On June 15, 2021, The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) gained information that Hill was in possession of a rifle and handgun. ATF believed Hill was willing to sell both firearms to a confidential source for $1,400.

According to the press release, a controlled buy was to take place at 30th and Cuming Streets. Hill went to the location and accepted the money for the weapons. Hill did not provide the weapons to the source and instead pulled one out and threatened them with it.

The source had live-streamed the entire exchange to law enforcement.

Law enforcement sent a marked police cruiser to the parking lot fearing that Hill would shoot the source.¬†Hill then got out of the source’s vehicle with the gun and money, telling the source, “don’t try anything funny.”

Law enforcement eventually stopped and arrested Hill for his outstanding arrest warrant. Law enforcement searched Hill’s vehicle and found a loaded Smith & Wesson .380 caliber handgun and the $1,400 in serialized ATF currency.

The Omaha Police Department assisted the ATF in investigating this case.
