A heist apparently proved to be too much work for burglars who hit a doctor's office late Thursday.
Lexington Police were called to a medical building on North Eagle Creek, off Richmond Road.
A security guard called police after hearing a crashing sound and spotting a safe on the building's stairwell.
It was later determined an office was hit.
Police say it appears the burglars were carrying the safe and just couldn't carry it any farther.
The security guard noticed a blue van leaving the scene.
It's unknown what may have been inside the safe.
