Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 402-475-3600.

Police said they have one person in custody after three suspects went on a crime spree in a Lincoln neighborhood.

Just after 5 a.m. Tuesday, a man reported his van was was not where he left it, parked near 25th & Sumner. Police say the van was unlocked with the key in the ignition.

A short time later, police spotted that white van near 21st & G street. An officer attempted to stop the vehicle, but three suspects fled near Capital Avenue.

Captain Ward says officers later learned the suspects used the van to go on a vandalism spree, breaking car windows and stealing items.

Officers were able to arrest one of the suspects. A K-9 track led officers to a backpack full of what police consider burglary tools.

Police arrested Vu Huynh, 19, for theft by receiving stolen property, possession of burglar’s tools and possession of controlled substance.
