Police continue to look for a man they say is breaking into gym lockers and cars. We brought you this story back in July. This happened at some 'Y' locations around Lexington. Now Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward in the case.

Police say he's committed at least half a dozen crimes in the Lexington area.

"The way he's getting into the lockers is he's entering the gym with a gym bag, which we are assuming he has some type of bolt cutters in the bag when he enters the locker room," says Detective Eric Hobson with Lexington Police.

They say the man somehow makes his way past gym employees, but they say he's not scanning a membership card. He's caught on camera later using some stolen credit cards. Police say he's not only taking credit cards.

"He's actually taking the keys from the lockers and going out to the parking lots with the cars and uses the key fob to figure out which car the keys belong to and steals inside the vehicles as well," says Detective Eric Hobson.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 dollar cash reward for information leading to an arrest in this case. Call Crime Stoppers at 859-253-2020. It's a free call and they don't want your name, just your information.
