Two people are in trouble with the law after police say they tried to steal from a gas station and fled the scene.

Around 9:45 p.m. Monday, a shoplifting was reported at the Kwik Shop at Cotner and Holdrege. Then just before 10 p.m., Lincoln Police said the suspects crashed their car in the north entrance of Bethany Park, striking a light pole.

Police said both suspects left the scene but were found.

The driver was taken into custody. The passenger was cited for shoplifting.
