UPDATE: Armed Robbery Suspect Linked to Four Robberies

By  | 

Lincoln Police nab a robbery suspect less than 10 minutes after the reported robbery. Police say it's the same suspect responsible for three other capital city robberies.

Police say 23-year-old Terrance Nevels was arrested Monday after an armed robbery at the Rhino Stop gas station.

Just before 6:30 p.m. police responded to 2000 West O Street after Nevels walked in and demanded money from the Rhino Stop.

According to police reports, a witness in a nearby park saw Nevels run away and get into a van.
Officers spotted Nevels' silver van and began to follow him. That turned into a four minute, high speed chase and police were able to deflate the van's tires with stop sticks, near 2nd and O Streets. Nevels continued to drive on the rims of the vehicle until 9th and N.

Police said Nevels jumped out of his car, and officers were able to catch him after a short chase on foot.

Witnesses on the scene told 10/11 News that they saw about 20 police cars at 9th and N when the chase was over. Officers had Nevels in custody just eight minutes after the initial call.

Police confirmed Monday that this robbery is related to three other robberies in Lincoln. The Robberies Include: the Git and Split robbed on Saturday, March 22, Jobob's robbed on Sunday, March 23 and Kwik Shop (1st and Cornhusker) robbed on Monday, March 24 along with the Rhino Stop robbery.

Nevels was arrested for four counts of Robbery, four counts of Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony, Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person and Attempted Assault on an Officer. During the chase Police say Nevels tried to hit an officer with his car.

Police say Nevels was just paroled in August for his part in a 2009 robbery at George's Auto.
