All it took was a crowbar for three men to get inside a Lexington Speedway, according to police.

Lexington Police officials said officers received a glass-break alarm from the Speedway gas station on the 2900 block of Tates Creek Road, early Thursday morning.

Once officers arrived at the gas station, they found that the front door had been pried open, police said. No one was found inside.

According to police, officers reviewed surveillance video from inside the station. Cameras captured three men, wearing masks and gloves, breaking into the store and stealing cash, cigarettes and a few 5-Hour Energy drinks before taking off.

Police believe the suspected burglars got into a nearby car, because police K-9 units were unable to get a track.

Police have recently responded to burglaries at the same Speedway; once in December 2013 and once in November 2013.
