LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – Lexington police have arrested a man who they say robbed a Dollar Tree.

It happened just before closing time on Thursday night at the store on Clays Mill Road, near New Circle.

54-year-old Jackie Love was arrested after police identified him using surveillance video from the store.

Officers say on Friday they tried to pull Love over, but he got out of his car and ran away.

K-9 officers eventually found him hiding in some bushes.

Investigators believe he may be connected to several robberies at local businesses within the last week.
