Vehicle break-ins in Lexington are on the rise. In 2019, Lexington police are reporting 1,900 thefts from vehicles. That’s on pace to surpass last year’s total.
Police Public Information Officer Brenna Angel said in November alone 55 guns were reported stolen from vehicles.
“A lot of times those guns are never recovered. If we do recover a gun that was stolen from a vehicle, we’re usually seeing it connected to another crime, such as a violent crime or something dealing with narcotics,” said Angel.
