Police receive possible break in series of thefts

Police hope they have put an end to a string of thefts plaguing one part of Lexington.

Police got a call from someone at the Cloisters Apartments on Pimlico Parkway early Monday.

That witness was watching a thief break into a vending machine at the apartment complex.

Money and drinks were stolen from the machine.

Police were able to get a license plate number, which led them to stop a GMC Envoy at the Kroger in Tates Creek Centre.

After searching the SUV, police found crowbars and other tools.

Howevever, police say they didn't have enough evidence to arrest the man and woman inside the vehicle.

Police say they have stopped the same SUV the past three nights in a row -- each time, in areas near the scene of a break-in.

Investigators plan to run tests on the tools to see if they could have been used in the break-ins.

Investigators haven't released what other places may have been targeted.
