Police said he was involved in the Nov. 2 robbery of the Valero gas station at 30th and Lake streets and the Nov. 10 robbery of the Bucky’s at 40th and Dodge streets.

The 12 other robberies are listed below:

  • Oct. 24 - Bucky's at 72nd and Maple

Croffer turned himself into members of the Metro Area Fugitive Task Force on Wednesday morning, a day after a warrant for his arrest was issued.

That warrant was for the Nov. 7 robbery of the Kum and Go at 82nd and Maple streets.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says Croffer admitted to Omaha police officers he also robbed the Great Southern Bank in Fort Calhoun.
