Burglar tries, fails at stealing cigarettes

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A would-be thief ended up going for other items after he couldn't get into a case full of cigarette cartons.

Surveillance video caught the burglar in the act as he used a brick to smash the front door of a Dollar General on Dawson Road just before 6:30 a.m. Friday.

But as much as he tried, he could not get the cigarette case open.

After shaking the case one last time, the suspect finally gives up. Video shows him fill up a box with face wipes, face scrub, acne cream, sunscreen, and body spray before running off.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeSTOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS.
