However, at the last minute, the supposed customer changed the delivery address to a building near S 13th and ‘O’ Streets.

The delivery driver attempted to drop off the computers but was unable to because the elevator was out of order. The delivery was successfully made the following day, but the final delivery destination is unknown at this time, reports Lincoln Police.
