Teen arrested for possessing stolen gun

A Lincoln teen is in jail after police recovered a stolen gun from him early Sunday morning. Captain Chris Peterson says police arrested 18-year-old Caleb Phillips for possession of a stolen firearm.

Police say Phillips tried to hide a gun in some bushes near 23rd and Holdredge before getting into the passenger seat of a car that drove off.

Police stopped the car and arrested Phillips. The gun had been taken from a home in southwest Lincoln in January.
