An Omaha teenager was arrested in connection with the armed robbery of a Lincoln convenience store Sunday morning.
Police say four males entered the U-Stop at 13th and South streets just before 1:30 a.m. and demanded money as one suspect pulled a gun. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash plus beer and cigarettes, three got into a vehicle and drove off while the other ran away.
A police officer in the area spotted the one suspect, said to be a 17-year-old from Omaha, and took him into custody. The gun was recovered. The teen, whose name has not been released, faces charges of armed robbery and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
