Police say a man used a socket wrench to break into a Lexington gas station early Friday morning, but only got away with cigarettes.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. at the Speedway on Tates Creek and Old Mount Tabor Road. It’s the second break-in there in the past month.
Police say the suspect broke the front door glass with a socket wrench, grabbed some cigarettes and left a trail of evidence to a church parking lot behind the store.
Officials say the suspect’s description matches another convenience store break-in off Polo Club Boulevard earlier this week.
