A man says he came downstairs and found a group of burglars running out of his home early Thursday morning.
Police say a man who lives in a home along Bonnie Brae Drive, off Virginia Avenue near the UK campus, told them he came home around 1:30 a.m. and went upstairs. When he came back down, he saw as many as five people inside picking things up. Investigators say the group of burglars ran out the back door with a laptop computer, a cell phone and the victim's wallet. The man ran to a neighbor's and called 911.
Police brought in a K9, but had no success tracking the suspects.
Investigators say they think the burglars likely followed the man inside when he got home.
