ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An East Albany pharmacy was burglarized over the weekend, but it wasn't drugs the crook was after.

A masked man smashed the front glass door of the Rite Aid on Sylvester Road about 2 Saturday morning.  

Police say surveillance video showed the burglar went straight behind the counter to the cigarettes, grabbing dozens of packs of cigarettes.
The video showed the man tripped as he ran out of the store, dropping two packs of Newports.

Police say 55 individual packs of cigarettes were stolen.
