Police in Jessamine County continue to search for a man who took a front-loader and led police on a chase early Monday morning.
Police say officers spotted a man driving a stolen Bobcat front-loader along Main Street in Wilmore near Asbury and gave chase. The thief drove through a gate and into a heavily wooded area. Police couldn't drive their cruisers into the woods, so they continued the chase on foot. They located the Bobcat, but the man was nowhere in sight. Officers called in a Lexington Police Department K9 to assist, but so far have not located the suspect.
Police say they don't know who the Bobcat belongs to at this point.
