LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A robber tied up the clerk at a southeast Nebraska vape shop Sunday night and is still on the loose, authorities say.

The robbery happened at 6:45 p.m. at Vape Town in Syracuse, according to the Otoe County Sheriff’s Office.

A male wearing a mask and all-black clothing came into the store with a handgun and demanded money, the sheriff’s office said.

The clerk, who was not injured, got free a little later and called 911.

The robber was described as 5-foot-8 and 200 pounds with long, black hair with highlights.
