Blackstock, 33, of Minnesota, didn’t have a car and told them they were going to buy him more methamphetamine, Reitan said.

The male victim sent the woman and her daughter to call police.

Officers arrived around 2:45 p.m. and arrested Blackstock without incident, Reitan said.

Police searched Blackstock and found a handgun reported stolen from Minnesota and drug paraphernalia with residue in it, Reitan said.

No one was injured.

Investigators suspect he might have been under the influence of narcotics.

Blackstock was taken to the Lancaster County jail on suspicion of terroristic threats, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony, possession of a controlled substance and possession of a deadly weapon by a felon.

He has several felony weapons and drug convictions out of Minnesota, state records show.
