A thief in Fort Thomas had repeatedly been using the same method to steal cartons of cigarettes.
Fort Thomas Police says that in each instance, a man enters a gas station and asks for Newport cigarettes. The clerk pulls the cigarettes and places them in a bag. The suspect hands the clerk a credit card, which comes back denied. The thief takes the bag and runs to a waiting older red Chevrolet S-10 pickup.
Anyone that recognizes the subject in this surveillance photo should contact Crimestoppers at 352-3040. All calls are anonymous and callers may be eligible for a cash reward.
Detective Brad Adams with the Fort Thomas Police Department is investigating the thefts.
UPDATE - This is Darrin hijacking Mark's post. There was an email that went out the next day that indicated they had caught the guy (thanks to a tip) and he confessed to the thefts. Go FTPD!
