Lexington police are looking for the man who drove his pickup into a store and stole cigarettes Thursday morning.
Surveillance video shows the driver of a pickup backing into the Mini Mart on East Loudon Avenue two or three times at around 6 a.m. The impact knocked a plexiglass window out of its mounting. The suspect went inside the store, and the owner says he got away with about 30 cartons of Newport cigarettes.
Employees discovered the break-in about 30 minutes later.
Police continue to investigate.
