On January 11, 2018, at around midnight, a Lancaster County Sheriff’s deputy tried to stop a car for speeding near Hwy 77 and Bluff Road. The driver fled from the deputy, a partial license plate number was obtained, and after a short pursuit, the chase was ended in the interest of public safety.
During the ensuing weeks, investigators located the car involved in the chase and recovered a handgun case and ammunition that had been stolen during a residential burglary in Saunders County the night of the pursuit with the deputy. A handgun taken during the Saunders County burglary was also eventually recovered.

Lincoln who were involved in various offenses in both Lancaster and
Saunders County. Incidental to the primary investigation, deputies
