LINCOLN, Neb. -- A 23-year-old shoplifting suspect is facing numerous charges after police say he attempted to swallow a bag of methamphetamine last week.

The Lincoln Police Department says Pablo Robinson was stopped while walking in the area of S. 11th Street and H Street on Thursday after he allegedly shoplifted two bottles of alcohol from the U-Stop at 610 S. 10th Street.

As the responding officer attempted to place Robinson in custody, they say, Robinson thrust his hand into his pocket.  The officer then placed Robinson on the ground and placed Robinson in handcuffs, according to police reports. 

Additional officers arrived and located a knife in Robinson’s pocket, as well as a pipe that pre-tested positive for methamphetamine residue.

Robinson also reportedly attempted to ingest a plastic baggie containing suspected methamphetamine. Robinson was then medically evaluated at a local area hospital before being transported to jail. 

Officers cited and lodged Robinson on multiple felony charges.
