Thief uses rock to break in Lexington bike shop

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) A display window was smashed and a bicycle was stolen from a shop in downtown Lexington early Wednesday morning, according to police.

When WKYT's Whitney Wetzel arrived, the manager at Scheller's on Woodland Avenue was clearing up the broken glass left on the street after police say the robber smashed the window with a rock around 3:00 AM.

Police said the robber stole a bicycle sitting in the display window of the shop, valued at $399, which we're told is relatively cheap for a bicycle.

"It was a black, single speed bike, commonly referred to as a 'fixie,'" said Andy Lanier, manager of Scheller's. "It's made by a company called Phat. It's known as a Phat Phixie. It's just a very basic non-descript bike. All black."

Police are now searching for someone who's riding around on that new set of wheels.
