OMAHA, Nebraska – Thursday, a man from Blair was sentenced for planning to murder a federal fish and wildlife agent.

Cody Cape, 24, was sentenced to less than ten years in prison for threatening to kill a federal officer.

The officer issued Cape a citation for a fishing violation in October 2020. He and his friend were subjects of an ongoing poaching investigation that the police was conducting.

According to the Nebraska Department of Justice investigation, equipped with a handgun in December 2020, Cape informed a friend he intended to use explosives to murder the officer and his family.

Cape admitted to the FBI that he had made the threats after his friend reported him.

In the federal system, there is no parole, and after spending 117 months, Cape will begin a three-year period of supervised release.
