New Developments In A Lexington Carjacking

Police have found the car taken at gunpoint last night at the intersection of Main and Newtown Pike.

The car was found, abandoned, just a few feet from where it was taken.

A man told Lexington Police he was carjacked around 11:30 Monday night.

The victim told police he was sitting at a stoplight at Main Street and Newtown Pike, when a man approached his car. He says the man pulled out a gun, and demanded his car.

The suspect then took off, outbound on Newtown Pike, while the victim went to a Marathon station to call for help.

Now that police have the car, they say there's a good chance they'll find the carjacker, too.

    I don't believe this really occurred because there was no report about it in the local newspaper. There is no way we could have a carjacking at one of the most prominent intersections in Lexington Kentucky. This is the same intersection where hundreds of thousands of tourist coming to Lexington for the Horse Olympics, in 2010 will be traveling through. Now we will have a bunch of drunk horses on Sunday and all of them being carjacked right here in downtown Lexington. This is obviously some kind of big hoax in the city that never has any criminal activity. Now that the sarcasm has been spewed, it is again time to warn others to stay far away from Lexington Kentucky if you want to be safe. Don't ever stop at an intersection with your windows down and never leave home without packing heat in the seat.
