WKYT Crimetracker: Smash 'n grabs alert area businesses

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – Since August, the Lexington Police Department has seen an increase of "smash 'n grab" burglaries.

There have been more than six burglaries in which suspects forced their way into businesses and pried open safes and ATM's.

"Basically, they're going through the back door, forcing their way in and taking cash registers, safes, things of that nature," said Detective Patrick McMullin, with the Lexington Police Department.

Investigators were able to retrieve surveillance video in some of these burglaries.
