LPD makes arrest in gas station burglary cases

Following an extensive investigation into multiple burglaries, which included the theft of lottery tickets from multiple gas stations, a Lexington man has been arrested.  Jeremy John Jarman, 42, was charged with two counts of Burglary 3rd degree.

On April 16 and April 23, 2018 a local gas station was broken into and several rolls of scratch off lottery tickets were stolen.  In both burglaries, the suspect was observed via video surveillance breaking glass out of the front door and entering the store. After stealing the items from the store, the suspect fled out of the front door. The total amount of stolen lottery tickets from both burglaries was over $4000.00.

Through the course of the investigation, detectives from the Commercial Crimes Unit were able to identify Jarman as the suspect and charge him with the burglaries.  Investigations are still ongoing in other burglary cases and Jarman may face additional charges.

Jarman is currently lodged in the Fayette County Detention Center.
