Two men are behind bars thanks to the Metro Fugitive Task Force.

Tuesday, 18–year old Deanta Delarosa and 23–year–old Raphael Johnson were both arrested near 18th and J streets on outstanding warrants. Delarosa’s warrant was for a felony robbery and Johnson’s was for a misdemeanor. When searching their apartment, officials also found a semi–automatic shotgun.

"Further investigation determined that that shotgun had been stolen out of a motor vehicle last September in Lincoln," says Sheriff Terry Wagner, Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office.

Delarosa is a convicted felon. He was lodged for possession of a stolen firearm and a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.
