There's a crime alert in Lexington as police search for a man who robbed a gas station.
It happened just after 8:00 this morning at the Speedway on Paris Pike. Police say the robber told the clerk he wanted to buy a drink.
When the clerk opened the cash register, the man reached in and grabbed cash from the drawer. He headed out the door followed by a customer who chased the man for quite while, but couldn't catch him.
The chase ended in the Rogers Road area.
