North Platte, Neb. — North Platte Police say on Thursday they  arrested a suspect in two recent robberies at a residence in the 1800 block of East 2nd without incident. He is 27 year old Cory Tabbee. He was identified as a suspect in two recent robberies through information offered through the Lincoln County Crimestoppers program. Police previously said he was living in that vicinity.  A maroon pickup seen in the area of the robberies was also located.

Police are investigating two armed robberies that occurred about 30 minutes apart on Monday between 4:00 and 5:00 a.m. In the first incident, a male dressed in black clothing with a black bandanna covering his face entered the Kwik Stop at 1420 Rodeo Road. The suspect brandished a large kitchen knife at the clerk and demanded the cash from the register. The suspect removed cash from the drawer and left.

In the second incident, a suspect matching the same description, entered Penny’s Diner and brandished a large kitchen knife at the clerk. The suspect again removed cash from the drawer and left.

North Platte Police  shared on Thursday that less than $500 was stolen in both robberies.

The suspect also entered the Kwik Stop at 9th and Jeffers, but did not commit a robbery although it is believed that was his intention.
