LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)-The video from Delong Concrete is crystal clear.

Now, Lexington Police investigators are hoping you know who the men it are.

Officers say the pair cut a fence of the business near the I-64 and I-75 spilt in the middle of the night to steal a piece of heavy machinery over the weekend of April 18-th.

Detective Patrick McMullin, of the Lexington Police Department, has been investigating the case. "They'd been out there. Probably knew exactly where to park. Knew there was limited traffic at that time in the morning in the area."

Police say the Kubota brand machine was a model RTV900, worth between 12 and 15-thousand dollars.

Because the business is located near the interstates, officers say their suspects could be anywhere.

"They knew the quickest way to get in and get out. According to patrol officers, they tracked the vehicle to the interstate where they'd evidently parked a truck and trailer there."

Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. Call Crimestoppers at 859-253-2020. It is a free call and it is anonymous.
