Search for suspect in Lexington Subway burglary

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police are looking for the man who broke into a Lexington restaurant.

It happened Sunday night at the Subway restaurant on Palumbo Drive. Lexington police say the store's alarms did not sound when a masked man used a rock to smash a window.

Surveillance video shows the man crawled through the broken window and spent several minutes inside the store, before getting cash out of the register. Lexington police also said the man used a crowbar to try and get into the store's safe, but was unsuccessful.

In a hurry to leave, police said the thief left the crowbar behind. He later returned to the store, retrieved the crowbar, and stole a change machine.

The restaurant remains open. Lexington police are reviewing the surveillance video. So far no arrests have been made.
