Lexington police search for couple who stole thousands from Rally's

Lexington police are looking for a man and woman who stole thousands of dollars at gunpoint from a fast-food restaurant Tuesday.

The robbery occurred about 1 a.m. at Rally's at 410 Georgetown Street. No one was injured.

Employees told officers the man and woman — armed with handguns and wearing bandannas over their faces — entered through an unlocked side door, forced employees to the ground and demanded money from a safe, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.

The duo escaped with several thousand dollars in cash, she said.

Officers and dogs weren't able to track the suspects past nearby Oak Street, where some of the cash appeared to have been dropped.

Roberts said the man was wearing a black Chicago Bulls jacket and baggy pants. The woman was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, jeans and brown boots. They appeared to be in their mid-20s.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Lexington police at (859) 258-3600.
