2 men reportedly burglarize same apartment twice
LPD says the men broke in, flashed an AR-15 rifle at the victims, and stole over $1k worth of possessions. Later that day, they went back for more.
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- At about 3:27 a.m. on Thursday, LPD reported responding to the report of a belated burglary.
When they arrived, LPD officers say they talked to a 21-year-old female victim and a 19-year-old male victim who told them that two individuals forced their way into the apartment.
The victims told police that once the burglars were in the apartment, they brandished an AR-15 rifle and stole an Xbox gaming system, a speaker, a necklace, and about $400, with a total loss of about $1,100.
At about 6:31 p.m. on Thursday, LPD reported being called to the same apartment after a neighbor reportedly told police that two males may be attempting to burglarize the apartment.
When they arrived at the apartment, officers say they surrounded the apartment and announced their presence to the suspect (s) inside. The two suspects reportedly disobeyed the officers’ orders. According to LPD, one of the suspects, Dangelo Harris, 22-years-old, jumped off the balcony and fled from police.
