LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — One night in late September, a handful of businesses were burglarized on Lexington’s west side. Security video in each case showed a uniquely masked man.
Dave Rogers, owner of Fat Daisy Skateboard Company, said he woke up the morning of Sept. 22 and noticed the back door to his shop was wide open. His first thought was that his son forgot to close it when he left the night before, but Rogers said when he went back through his video, he found Batman.

The same night as the break-in at Rogers’ store, security cameras also captured him trying to get into Ernie’s Liquor and Spirits and a tattoo shop in the same Allendale Drive strip mall as the skateboard shop. Rogers said the masked man was in his store for about three minutes but didn’t take a thing. Other business owners reported the same thing.
“He went through everything, but after he went through stuff, he put it away,” Rogers said. “He just busted my door, came in and rummaged through our stuff, and left.”
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,500 reward for information on Batman’s true identity. If you know anything about these crimes, call the anonymous tip line at 859-253-2020 or go online to p3tips.com.
