Lexington police are asking for help identifying a man who they say stole money from the safe at the Explorium on two occasions last month.
An employee at the children’s museum told police on May 8 that a man who they did not know, came in after hours and took money from the safe. Police said the employees told them the same man, who was captured on video surveillance, had been inside after the Explorium had closed asking about buying a ticket.
Police say the man was captured on video surveillance again later in the month. An employee called on May 27 to report that money had again been taken from the safe.
Anyone with information about the man is asked to call Lexington police at 859-258-3600.
