UPDATE

At approximately 7:30 AM on Thursday, Sylvester LeBlanc was arrested in Lincoln, NE by the Metro Fugitive Task Force.  He is being held at the Lancaster County jail on a warrant for Robbery and Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony issued by the Lincoln County Court.  The warrant was related to this case and bond was set at 10% of $500,000.

It is unknown if additional charges are pending in Lancaster County, however, LeBlanc will eventually be transported back to Lincoln County if he doesn’t post bond.

 

________________________________________________________________________________

According to a North Platte Police Department news release, Sylvester LeBlanc is in police custody.

Police have been searching for LeBlanc since his alleged participation in an armed robbery on February 11.

At 10:30pm on Februay 11, Officers responded to Kings Trailer Park in the 2400 block of West 9th on the report of an armed robbery.  Through their investigation, officers learned that LeBlanc and Jeffery Denson had fled the scene.  The victim, a 20-year-old female, alleged that Denson and LeBlanc had asked to use their bathroom.  Shortly after they entered the trailer, police say LeBlanc brandished a gun and demanded money.  The suspects also took a cellular phone.

Officers were able to locate Denson a short time later, however, they were unable to locate LeBlanc and he has been at-large since.

LeBlanc faces charges of Robbery, Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony and Terroristic Threats.

    whew- now I can breathe a little easier knowing the alleged “good kid” is now safe and sound in the custody of other “good folks” who have his best interests at heart! I wonder if he was feeling good enough to turn in his gun and bullets so nobody else could use them to do potential harm.

        Actually people go to jail for MIP because it is AGAINST THE LAW. So yes that makes you a bad person, you broke the law…wake up, stop making excuses for people who make bad decisions, they need to pay for those mistakes, not get away with them, that is what will make them think the next time before they do something…its called CONSEQUENCES FOR CHOICES YOU MAKE!!!

I didnt realize there were so many saints walking the earth, and Im really surprised that there are this many in North Platte and surrounding areas alone. Wake up, look at yourselves, think about it….then after that find something to do besides worry about other people.

    PizzaGirl – “Because she already lied saying they went in for bathroom haha he would of just went outside. All they took was weed”

    Isn’t that statement self contradicting?

    If someone illegally takes someone else’s property through use of force or coercion, be it a bottle of aspirin, a bag of marijuana, or a gold brick, that is called “robbery.” No gun need be involved. If you punch someone and take their stuff, that is called “strongarm robbery.” Key word still being “robbery”

    Of course, if the other person really is lying, maybe your fiance should voluntarily take a polygraph to clear his name.

    Then again, since you stated on this public forum that you know for a fact that they DID take something, it could be a very simple matter for the court to compel you to testify or face charges yourself.

    He is trash. Plain and simple. “oh where’s the gun where’s the gun? No gun had been found!” Wow really? Well I guess if I used a gun illegally I would probably make sure they couldn’t find it. How dumb do you have to be to just give up a gun used in a crime that will ultimately convict you and send you to the pen. Its probably in her blue suv. Also “ONLY WEED” is only a crime itself. Oh because it was only weed he’s a good guy. Well I’m sure if there were more charges to be filed against any and all people who broke the law then I’m pretty sure nppd would not for a second hesitate to issue a ticket given the simple fact that the cops around here are ticket nazis. Put the piece of trash and his “fiancee”where they belong… In the trash can. One in York and the other in Lincoln. They should just keep him in LancasterCounty so my tax dollars ain’t paying for his transport.

    @Christina..Sylvester is far from being trash..just because he grew up around a family full of trouble makers doesn’t mean anything.. everyone makes bad choices a few times in their lives..the only true trash here is you for judging people you have no right judging.. we are all trouble makers in some way, just some aren’t as bad

    Also if I recall sly as you call him was in trouble in his youth for bashing a guy in the head repeatedly with a brick putting the guy in a comma and on life support so all you that claim oh he is such a good guy yeah bs someone else do some research on him before claiming his good. I hope he rots behind bars!
