Police Investigate String of Robberies

Lexington Police are looking for a man who robbed a restaurant after locking up the workers. It happened at the Long John Silvers on Tates Creek.

Just before ten Monday night, a man wearing a "Scream" mask pointed a gun at the employees behind the counter.
The suspect then locked the employees into a freezer, while he went through the cash registers.

After about ten minutes, employees felt safe enough to come out of the freezer. That's when they called for help.

Officials are investigating a string of fast food restaurant robberies spanning more than a year.

In each robbery, the suspect was wearing the same mask.
