LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — One victim lost an estimated $6,000 after their garage was burglarized.
The incident happened around 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 7 in the 4000 block of Randolph Street.
The 41-year-old victim reported numerous tools, a handgun, and a 2000 silver Buick Century had been stolen.
Two days later, investigators spotted the stolen vehicle at a gas station near 33rd and Holdrege Street.
While the driver, 29-year-old Charles Tomes, was being taken into custody, 21-year-old Aryadne Fenin arrived back at the car.
