Teen Referred After Shoplift During A Reported Robbery Early Monday

LINCOLN–(KFOR May 24)–A 17-year-old has been referred for shoplifting, after a reported robbery early Monday morning inside the Kwik Shop at 23rd and Cornhusker.

Lincoln Police Sgt. Chris Vollmer says someone saw the teen, another male and a female get out of a car that was reported stolen, but the female fled the store with a stolen bottle of liquor and the two males right behind her.

“Once at the car, one of the males displayed a handgun secured in their waistband,” Sgt. Vollmer added.
