According to the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) here is a list of 10 important reminders consumers should do to protect their information.

A man who indicated that he was armed cornered two employees at DeLeon's Taco Rico near 27th and Randolph streets on Tuesday morning before taking cash out of the register and fleeing, according to Lincoln police. 

Officer Erin Spilker said the man entered the business and demanded money from two women working. Spilker said he implied he had a weapon, but never produced one. 

The two women fled the man and exited the restaurant, Spilker said. The man took money from the register and did the same. It's unclear how much cash he made off with, Spilker said. 

Officers are reviewing surveillance footage, and an investigation into robbery is ongoing.
