Serial Cigarette Bandits Targeting Houston Stores? HPD says maybe
By Kathryn Yglecias, Senior Web Producer -
Houston police think they may have some serial cigarette bandits on the loose in Houston. The latest target of the bandits was the CVS Pharmacy at Irvington and Cavalcade in North Houston.
These bandits were so determined to get to their loot they had to return to the store after they discovered their first attempt to break the locks on the door failed. They returned with different equipment and this time were successful.
A review of the surveillance video shows the three men wearing masks entering the store and emptying shelves of cigarettes.
HPD says the suspects are very similar in dress to the men who hit a Foodarama earlier this week.
