Police arrested a 22-year-old Lincoln man and seized a 12-gauge shotgun, .223 AR rifle and .40-caliber handgun and ammunition from his home near 10th and F streets late Thursday.
Officer Angela Sands said Levi Heilig was arrested just after 11:50 p.m. on suspicion of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
She said the department’s gang unit served a search warrant after getting a tip that Heilig had been posting pictures of himself with firearms on social media. Sands said he isn’t able to possess firearms legally as a result of a domestic assault conviction.
