LPD: Man Steals Car, Later Shoplifts Cigarettes

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Lexington Police are looking for a man they say shoved a delivery driver out of the way and stole his car and later shoplifted from a gas station.

Investigators say it all began around 5:45 p.m. Friday when a worker was making a delivery on Alumni Drive. The driver told police as he got out of his way, a man came up and shoved him out of the way and stole the car, a 2016 white Ford Fusion. Police say the delivery driver wasn’t hurt.
