Smoke shop near Occupy Boston repeatedly burglarized


Boston Police today released images of two men they believe broke in to a Downtown smoke shop, which has been burglarized four times in as many weeks.

Authorities released pictures of the suspects, along with video, which can be viewed below.

The first incident at Congress Card & Tobacco occurred Sept. 29 about 12:45 a.m. The front door of the store was smashed when owners arrived in the morning and the cash register was knocked to the ground. The store’s video captured two men enter the store with a plastic bag and fill it with tobacco products, scratch tickets and cash, police said.

The second incident occurred Oct. 9 about 3:30 a.m. when officers responded to the store’s alarm and found the door smashed again. The owner told police that cash and 13 cartons of cigarettes were missing.

Similar incidents occurred again on Oct. 11 and Tuesday.

The owner of the store, Linda Capillo, told WCVB that she found a cardboard sign on the floor inside the store after one of the burglaries with writing connected with the nearby Occupy Boston encampment. She said her store has not been broken in to in 23 years on Congress Street.

An Occupy Boston spokesman told WCVB they don’t support the actions and speak out against violence and vandalism.

Anyone with information can call 617-343-4248.
