ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Thieves took thousand dollars worth of cigarettes from a Dougherty County convenience store last night.   Store workers suspect the thief was a regular customer.  

Police were called to the Express Lane on Newton Road just before midnight.

Someone broke out a metal panel below a window on the side of the store, right by the cigarette display. The thief stole 66 cartons of cigarettes, worth nearly $2,700.

Store workers say they think someone had cased out the store before the break in.
