The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says Sylvester LaBlanc was involved with robbing a pregnant woman in North Platte.

Sheriff Terry Wagner says the Lincoln/Lancaster County Metro Area Fugitive Task Force found the 19-year-old LeBlanc was found hiding in a closet of his mother's home in Lincoln.

North Platte Police say on February 11, LeBlanc, along with Jeffery Denson, 21, robbed the North Platte woman in her home after asking to use her restroom.  LeBlanc is accused of showing a handgun and demanding money from the woman.

Sheriff Wagner says officers also found marijuana when they arrested LeBlanc.  He was arrested for robbery, use of a firearm to commit a felony, and felony possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

Denson was arrested in the early morning hours of Feb. 12, after officers spotted him driving a dark blue Chrysler 300.
