Sylvester LeBlanc III, 2012

Sylvester LeBlanc was found and arrested in Lincoln Thursday by the Metro Fugitive Task Force after a 10-day search.

LeBlanc, 19, has been wanted since Feb. 11, after Bethany Vencil, 20, of North Platte said he robbed her at gunpoint.

When police went to the Kings Court Trailer Park in the 2400 block of W. Ninth to investigate, Vencil told them Denson and LeBlanc were allowed to come in. They used the bathroom, and then LeBlanc brandished a handgun and demanded money.

They got a little cash and a cell phone, Police Information Officer Rodney Brown said.

Denson was picked up and arrested a little while later, but LeBlanc was missing for 10 days.

LeBlanc has gang tattoos on the inside of both forearms displaying GD (right) and 74 (left), symbols of a Chicago gang. The firearm used during the robbery was not recovered at the time, so LeBlanc was thought to be armed and dangerous.

LeBlanc is now at the Lancaster County jail, held on the Lincoln County warrant for robbery and use of a weapon to commit a felony. His bond is $500,000.

He was nabbed at approximately 7:30 a.m. Thursday, Brown said.
