We have taken several cigarette theft reports this year that involved a white pickup truck as the getaway vehicle. The latest incident occurred early yesterday morning.
On October 26, 2011, around 5:30 a.m., two people entered a store in the area of 75th and Metcalf. While the involved female distracted the clerk, the male suspect went behind the counter, grabbed several cartons of cigarettes, and fled the store to the white pickup truck. A short time later, the female returned to the white pickup truck, as well, and the two left the area.
The truck is further described as a Chevrolet Silverado extended cab with unknown tag. The truck has a black trim piece running horizontally across the middle of the door.
The suspects were described as a heavy-set black female wearing a white t-shirt and black pants and a tall, slender black male wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans, with an unshaven face and short black hair. He is believed to be involved in previous cigarette thefts.
