WAYNESBURG - Police in two counties continue the search today for two, possibly three, men suspected in a lightning round of early-morning break-ins on Tuesday.
According to Lincoln County dispatchers, the men are wanted in connection with thefts at several small businesses in Pulaski and Lincoln counties. Four Pulaski stores were hit within about 46 minutes, reported officials, with two locations burglarized soon after in Lincoln County.
The suspects began their chain of thefts on Ky. 461 in Pulaski, proceeded on Ky. 80, and ended their spree heading north on U.S. 27, said Pulaski County Sheriff Todd Wood.
Lincoln dispatchers were notified and called several area gas station owners to alert them of the possible threat.
Despite the calls, Leach' s Shell Mart in Waynesburg and Caney Creek B.P. were both burglarized before their owners could arrive.
