Lexington Police are looking for two men who robbed the Speedway at New Circle at Meadow Lane on April 24.

In the surveillance video, a man described by police as Hispanic with a blue bandanna over his face, can be seen waiving a silver handgun while demanding cash from the register.

Officers say that man has a distinctive jacket they hope you'll recognize.

"He was wearing a distinctive jacket with the letters "averex" on it. The jacket also had some other lettering on the back," explained Detective Steve McCown, who's working the case for the Lexington Police Department.

Police hope to find the suspect with the gun to help them figure out who the second person in the video is. They say from the surveillance, they can't tell much about him. The men got away with cash and now, officers believe both men are still in the area.

Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward. Call 859-253-2020 if you have any information in this case.

It's a free call and its anonymous.
