Robbery over the phone, that's what Lincoln police say one man did Wednesday morning.

Just before 4 a.m., police say a man called the Walgreen's at 27th and Pine Lake Road, told the clerk to put all the opium-based narcotics in a bag and set it outside. The caller didn't make any threats.

Instead of gathering the drugs, the clerk called police. An employee of a nearby business saw a tall man run from the Walgreens area. A dog track was unsuccessful.

Police are tracing the phone call and looking at video surveillance.
