On Sunday, Bowling Green police received a call of a robbery at an apartment on Chestnut Street.

The victim said a black man pointed a gun at his head when his phone and money were stolen. The victim also told police three males, two black and one white left the scene in a light blue Ford, four-door car.

The victim began tracking his stolen cell phone using, "Find my iPhone."

Police went to arrest Lee Hartz who was yelling profane speech toward officers in a non-compliant manner. Hartz attempted to turn away from an officer and spit toward his face.

During a search of the vehicle, officers located a 9mm KelTec handgun underneath the driver's seat. Hartz stated that everything in the vehicle was his including the handgun. Police found marijuana, a digital scale, a glass pipe, and other drug related items in the car.

Hartz and a juvenile were arrested. Hartz is charged with robbery, tampering with physical evidence, resisting arrest, drug paraphernalia buy/possess and possession of marijuana.
