Ashamed for stealing cigarettes, this thief entered the Wawa store on Street Road and Philmont Avenue and deceived the clerk with trickery. At approximately 0436 hours on May 14, 2019, this subject entered the store and asked for a carton of Newport cigarettes. Once the carton was placed on the counter by the clerk, the subject distracted the clerk by asking for a cigar as well. When the clerk turned around the subject fled the store. Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying this thief who concealed his face during the crime. Officials suspect that the Smokin' Bandit may be ashamed of his activity or his facial appearance may be so shocking that he would have frightened the clerk away.
