Tuba City Man Sentenced For Gas Station Robbery

This week, Omar Dixon, 37, of Tuba City, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Stephen M. McNamee to 84 months’ imprisonment. Dixon had previously pleaded guilty to robbery.

On Sept. 20, 2015, Dixon and two codefendants entered the Tuba City Shell gas station wearing disguises.  Dixon forcibly restrained the gas station attendant with a knife, while his codefendants seized the cash register, cigarette packs, and a security monitor.  Dixon and his two codefendants then fled the scene in a waiting vehicle.  Dixon was apprehended shortly after the robbery, in possession of two pocket knives, $130, and two unopened cigarette packs.  All defendants are members of the Navajo Nation.

The investigation in this case was conducted the Tuba City Police Department, the Tuba City Criminal Investigators’ Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
