Over $120,000 worth of cigarettes stolen -- Vandalia, OH

Police are searching for two thieves who stole $120,000 worth of cigarettes, cigars and tobacco products from a local warehouse on two early morning heists.

The first burglary was May 11 at a Poe Avenue warehouse and involved more than $90,000 worth of tobacco products. The second break-in was five days later, on May 16, where they stole another $30,000 in products, said police Sgt. Dave Steinbrunner.

Surveillance footage from the second break in shows the culprits dressed in dark-colored hooded sweatshirts and their faces covered.

They used a black SUV as a getaway.

Steinbrunner said the thieves were selective in which brands they chose to steal, though he declined to release the brand names.
