It’s easy to prevent being a victim of car-related thefts. Here are some steps to help prevent your contents from being stolen from your vehicle.

A 47-year-old Lincoln woman is accused of terroristic threats for allegedly pulling a gun in a Walmart parking lot Sunday afternoon. 

LPD Officer Luke Bonkiewicz said a 45-year-old woman called police saying that when she came out of the store on North 84th Street three people were standing behind her car.

She told police she didn't want to confront them, so she got in her vehicle, then slowly started backing up to get them to move. That's when, she told police, a woman in the group pulled out a gun.

The woman was able to drive off and called police.

Bonkiewicz said police talked to Tereasa Albert, who told them she had a concealed carry permit, and found a .40-caliber handgun and .380-caliber ammunition in her car. A further search turned up a .380 handgun stashed in the women's restroom in the store.

Police arrested Albert, who since has been charged with tampering with evidence and was to be arraigned Tuesday.
