_____________________________________________________________

The North Platte Police Department is searching for a robbery suspect on the loose following a robbery late Monday night.

At around 10:30PM on Monday, Officers responded to Kings Trailer Park in the 2400 block of West 9th on the report of a robbery.  Officers learned the suspects, Jeffery Denson, 21, and Sylvester LeBlanc III, 19, had just fled the scene in a dark blue Chrysler 300 with dealer plates.  The victim, a 20-year-old female, alleged that Denson and LeBland were given permission to enter the trailer after asking to use the restroom.  Upon entry, LeBlanc brandished a handgun and demanded money from the victim.  The suspects then stole a small amount of cash and a cellular phone.

Officers were able to locate Denson and another male passenger driving the suspect vehicle near the 1200 block of East 4th.  After conducting an investigation, Officers determined there was probable cause to arrest Denson for Robbery, Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony and Terroristic Threats.  Denson was jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.

Authorities are still searching for Sylvester LeBlanc.  LeBlanc is a black male and is approximately 6 feet tall and weighs 160 pounds.  He has brown eyes, black hair and gang tattoos on both arms.  “GD” on his right forearm and “74″ on his left arm.  The firearm used in the alleged crime has not been recovered, therefore, LeBlanc should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police want to encourage the public to call the Department’s non-emergency number, (308) 535-6789, with any information on LeBlanc’s whereabouts.  Citizens may also provide anonymous information through the Crime Stoppers website, www.lincolncountycrimestoppers.com or by calling (308) 534-8400 or toll-free at 800-933-TIPS.  Do not try to apprehend the suspect.

  • I’m really sorry to hear he chose that life style. I knew him about 6 years ago when he was very young. He had an awesome sense of humor. :( i hope he straightens himself out. I’m very sorry for the victim. I would have peed myself.

        and probably scared. THAT is what makes him more dangerous than a seasoned criminal. I hope it comes to a peaceful ending. Hate to see him get shot for being stupid.

      • What?

        It is that kind of ‘sympathy’ that enables these kids. He might have been the class clown at 12 or 13, but cracking jokes while committing a crime doesn’t make you any less dangerous. If he was willing to brand a gun or hang with those who do than I will lay odds he is willing to use it.

    I guess that OR bond Denson was released on is biting them in the ass now. How stupid are you to do an armed robbery a day after you get picked up on 10 other charges.

    He comes from a family of drug users and thieves. He hasn’t got a chance. He is following in the footsteps of the rest of the family. Once Albert and Percy died they all went to hell.

    I am amazed “mistakes”, “really aint (sic) a bad guy”, “Stupid” “Not dangerous” “Dumb”, we are talking about ARMED ROBBERY, not stealing a lollipop from a kid at school. Choosing to rob someone at gun point is not a mistake it is a crime, forgetting to brush your teeth is a mistake. I love this town crucify those you hate and build up those you like. HYPOCRISY!

    In the first place the woman was asking for trouble by letting those idiots in her house. She certainly isn`t playing with a full deck. If this person keeps up with armed robbery sooner or late he will pick on the wrong person and end up on the bottom side of the grass. That would be a fitting end for a criminal.

      He’ll him and Percy have been stealing since they could walk. They used to steal from the teachers, other kids, etc in elementary school (Lincoln school). You name it. Drug deals going on in their low rent house constantly. The biggest pos losers you ever seen, the whole family.

    Another fine example of the sucess of our juvenile system. He has been in trouble since middle school. We need to be tougher on juvenile offenders if we don’t want them to become adult offenders. He has friends and family in Lincoln and possible gang affiliates in Cozad and Lex. If nothing else…keep a watch at Wal-Mart after midnight. Seems to be the hang out for alot of young people with nothing to do.

    Gang Affiliates in COZAD…Lexington? You’re kidding, right? I grew up on the West Coast and y’all up here in Nebraska never been NEAR a gang member. Gangta Disciples. Ain’t nothin but a bunch of wanna be thugs playin gangsta. In the real, gangs may be doing the crimes but they be giving back to the hood too. Buildin rec centers to keep the kids off the streets, helping the elderly out with meals, yeah. They do THAT! they take care of their own. These punks have NO idea.

  • What?

    Wanna Bes can be even more dangerous than ‘real’ gang members. I too grew up in a city largely plagued with gang activity. Maybe, the older gang members ‘return to the hood’ but first they recruit young ‘lost’ soles to play gophers for their criminal activities. They also promote drug use and sales, prostitution, and violent crimes. If you truly believe that their are no ‘ganstas’ in Nebraska than you suffer from the ‘ostrich’ syndrom. It is that type of ignorence that has allowed gang and gang like activities to filter into even rural Nebraska.

      This I can believe. If the truth faced the NPPD in the face, they would still get it wrong. The biggest gang in NP is the good ol’ boys club!!!! An yes I can back up my mouth with the truth. Seen it first hand and actually called the NPPD out on it and got kicked out of the police station for saying the truth and calling them a pack of lyers!!!!!
