VIDEO: Men steal $15k worth of cigarettes from Tioga wholesale store
Philadelphia police are looking for three men caught on camera Sunday stealing $15,000 worth of cigarettes from a Tioga wholesale store.
Investigators said the suspects around 4:30 a.m. cut the lock of a rear gate and broke into the yard of B&B Wholesale at 2015 W. Allegheny Ave.
They then allegedly used an automotive jack to break open the store’s garage door.
Once inside, police said two of the men filled boxes and trash bags with numerous cartons of cigarettes, whose value is estimated to be $15,000.
They then fled on foot in an unknown direction.
The suspects are described as three black males wearing hooded jackets and cargo pants.
One of the men was last seen wearing a dark-colored ski mask.
