Police say a crafty crook is responsible for an early Monday morning break-in at a Lexington pharmacy.

The C&C Pharmacy on Mapleleaf Drive off Man o'War Blvd. was hit around two Monday morning.

Police say the burglar first cut power to the shop then smashed in the glass door.

He went to the pharmacy counter, looked for what he wanted but couldn't find it.

The Pharmacy owners say they move their goods around before closing in case of a break-in during the overnight hours. They say that was a lesson they learned after the first time they were burglarized.

The burglar left empty-handed.

Police suspect he may live nearby. Police are also looking into whether or not this crime is connected to a similar break-in several weeks ago at another business.
