Posted at 1:42 PM, Nov 29, 2018

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – Lexington police are looking for the suspect they say robbed a Lexington auto store.

The police say the suspect walked into the store and attempted to walk out with several items without paying. The clerk followed the man and demanded the return of the merchandise.

That’s when Lexington police say the suspect pulled out a firearm.

The stolen items totaled less than $50. Officers say that the suspect is known to the clerk so they have a good idea of who they are looking for.
