LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Lexington police are investigating another jewelry theft. This one is from Kay Jewelers inside Fayette Mall.
Detectives have exhausted all of their leads so they’re turning to Crime Stoppers hoping someone can identify the man they believe lives somewhere in central Kentucky.
The theft happened on June 16. The unidentified man got away with two bracelets valued at tens of thousands of dollars.
“The employee said he was very nice, even used the word ‘kind’ and said that he was interested in looking for some bracelets,” said Det. Anthony Delimpo.
What he wasn’t interested in, said police, was paying for them.
