LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Lincoln Police officers were running all over South Lincoln Monday night for three burglary reports, two attempted break-ins, and several vandalisms- all done by the same suspects.

CRIME NEWS: LPD: Multiple sex trafficking arrests made in Lincoln


Lincoln Police officers were called to the scene of a burglary where a loud noise was heard by the victim, a 66-year-old woman. When the woman went to investigate, she found a man standing on her porch.

She said the man ran away when he realized he’d been caught and hopped into a light-colored sedan.

Officers found her screen door had been cut, likely by the burglary as he tried to break into the house.


A short time later, around 10:30 pm, a different victim quickly called the police after finding that someone had broken into their home, and was still inside.

Lincoln Police responded to the home near Pine Lake Rd and S 27th Street to find the back door kicked in. The victim said the burglar ran away when he confronted him.


Then, around 11 pm, police responded to a vehicle break-in near Pine Lake Rd and S 14 Street. Nearby homeowners provided security footage that showed an unknown silver sedan parked in the driveway at the time of the thefts, then leaving the area.

Throughout the evening, officers would respond to multiple theft and vandalisms where car windows were broken in. Similar suspect and vehicle descriptions were given.


A fourth call came in of another home burglary near Rokeby Rd and S 27th Street. The 52-year-old victim said he heard a loud noise in his basement. When he went to investigate, he found his basement window had been shattered and his TV was missing.

The victim reported seeing the same silver sedan leaving the area.


A few minutes later, in the same area of Rokeby Rd and S 27th, another attempted burglary was reported by a woman who saw a man over her security system trying to force his way through a sliding glass window.

The man did ring the front doorbell before moving around the house to the sliding glass door.


Officers also spotted the silver sedan when they arrived to this area and pulled it over near Rokeby Rd and S 31st Street.

The Lincoln Police officer who approached the sedan saw a TV in the back of the vehicle, which was later identified as the same TV stolen from the home Rokeby Rd and S 27th Street.

The driver, 20-year-old Kelly Huynh, and the passenger, 19-year-old Terrell Davis, are suspected of being involved with all five burglary calls made that night, plus several other vandalism reports.

They were both arrested on several burglary and theft charges.
