A 21-year-old Omaha man is in custody for allegedly robbing two businesses in the last week; however, police say more charges may be in the works.

Deon Stewart was arrested Sunday evening after police received a tip.

He is currently charged with two counts of robbery.

Police believe he held up Midtown Gas, on 13th and Park Avenue, on November 7th and Check Into Cash, at 79th and Dodge on November 8th.

In both cases, the robber had a gun and got away with cash.

Omaha police are not releasing Stewart's mug shot. Officials said line-ups are still being conducted.
