Lexington Police say one of their officers was in the right place at the right time and able to stop a burglary in progress late Thursday night.
The officer was doing paper work when he pulled into the parking lot of the Man O'War Church of God on Trent Boulevard.
Police say the officer saw two men running from the front door.
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.
