Police recover stolen items while investigating car break-ins

Lexington Police were investigating numerous car break-ins near Hamburg Pavilion Monday morning.

Vehicles at Hyatt Place and Homewood Suites on Bryant Road were hit.

At Hyatt Place, a pickup truck attached to a trailer hauling an A/C unit was stolen.

Hours later, police recovered the vehicle and A/C on Delong Lane, off Delong Road, in southeastern Fayette County.

Investigators said it appears the thieves took a wrong turn and couldn't turn the vehicle, with the trailer attached, around.

They then left the vehicle and A/C unit and ran away.

"The people who stole the vehicle got it stuck in someone's yard, so when they woke up, it has my telephone number on the side of the truck so they called me," said Jim Pearson. He is hauling the unit from Florida to Cincinnati. Police returned the truck this morning but Pearson says the thieves drove the trailer into a bridge, damaging the $25,000 air conditioner

It's unclear how many vehicles were burglarized at the hotels but police say the case is ongoing.
