Lexington police continue the search for a burglar who broke into a Lexington business through the roof early Wednesday morning.
Police say the owner of La Bonita told them he came back to the store along Versailles Road, near Alexandria Drive, around 2 a.m. to pick up some money and spotted a man on the roof. He called 911, and a few minutes later, the burglar ran out the building's back door and got away. Police called in a little help from a fire department ladder truck. Once on the roof, officers discovered the burglar got into the building by cutting a hole in a vent.
Investigators say the burglar had access to La Bonita and the stores next door, but they don't yet know what, if anything, the man got away with.
