Lexington police were investigating a robbery late Monday at the Family Dollar store on Race Street.
Lt. Jesse Harris said three juveniles entered the store and demanded money from the clerk at gunpoint. One of the juveniles walked in first and acted as a lookout; the other two then entered the store dressed in black and pointed a gun. He did not say how much money they took.
The department's K-9 unit was used to track the juveniles, but the scent was lost after two blocks, Harris said. Investigators will review the store's surveillance footage to gather more information, he said.
