Lincoln Police arrested 39-year-old Jeffrey Blazek for Burglary and Possession of Burglar’s Tools.

They say Blazek was found inside Orscheln’s Farm & Home store near 56th and Cornhusker around 3 a.m. Friday. 

According to police, Blazek claimed he had been locked into the business after it closed, but they say a back door was found forced open.

Police also found three pairs of boots stacked near the door, which they believe Blazek intended to steal. 

Blazek has a history burglary-related offenses.
