LINCOLN -- A foiled drug deal leads to the arrest of two Lincoln teens. Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood says 18-year-old Kyle Stout and a 17-year-old friend, agreed to meet two other teens late Tuesday morning in the parking lot of the Hy-Vee at 50th and "O" to buy an ounce of pot. Flood says Stout and his friend sat in the seller's vehicle, when the 17-year-old buyer then pulled out a handgun and demanded everything. One of the sellers dialed 911 on his cell phone. The 17-year-old, who had the gun, demanded the phone, but saw 911 on the screen and he and Stout took off. Both were caught a short time later and arrested for robbery and use of a weapon to commit a felony. Flood says no marijuana was found, but the investigation continues.
