He investigated and found they had opened the door.

Nothing was stolen.

Police used search dogs to find a track to Armstrong Mill Road, but couldn't find the suspects.

    In other words, the officers did nothing. He saw the men running from the church and did not pursue. Are the police useless?

    Only in lexington would the police brag about letting the crooks get away. Everyone knows if anybody gets close to a burglary in process the thiefs will run ,could have some homeless person as will as a cop they are still not in jail where they belong.
