Description: Omaha, NE: Criminal defense lawyer represented defendant charged with felony firearm possession.

Delbert Lewis, age 28, of Omaha, Nebraska, was indicted for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On December 21, 2020, Omaha Police officers pulled over a vehicle in Omaha. Lewis was in the rear passenger seat. Officers searched the vehicle and found a loaded Glock 43, 9 mm pistol. Lewis later told police that the firearm was his and that he put it under the seat in front of him. Lewis was prohibited from possessing firearms because of prior felony convictions from Indiana for burglary, attempted robbery, and escape. In Lewis’s attempted robbery case, he attempted to take money from a victim by pointing a firearm at him.

This case was part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally based strategies to reduce violent crime.

The case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
