Crime Stoppers: Cigarette Theft

Sometime Friday night, October 22, burglar(s) forced their way into the Smoker’s Friend on South Green Street.

Once inside, police say they stole 563 cartons of cigarettes values at over $23,000.

A witness noticed the burglary around 3:45 a.m., and believes the suspects may have been in the store at that time.

Authorities are hoping someone may have some information about the stolen cigarettes, or may have heard about someone selling or
trading a large amount of cigarettes at an unusually discounted price.

If you have information about this or any crime, please call South Central Kentucky Crime Stoppers at 781-CLUE, toll free at
866-842-CLUE, or click here to go to their website.

You could get up to $1,000 for your anonymous tip.

Crime Stoppers telephone lines are not recorded, and they don’t use caller ID or *69.

They only want your information, not your name.
