An overnight robbery at the Tobacco Patch left the business missing approximately $30,000 of premium brand cigarettes. The store manager is offering a $2,000 bounty for information leading to the arrest of the suspects or suspects responsible.

According to manager Jason Wells, an individual or group of unknown suspects burglarized the store at 1843 Main Street between 6 P.M. on August 22, and 7 P.M. the following morning.

In addition to the value of the cigarettes, the burglar or burglars inflicted perhaps $5,000 in damage to the store. Wells reported that the front door was shattered with a cinder block during entry, phone and alarm lines were cut, the alarm and telephone system was stolen and the electrical meter was stolen.

“I have 10 stores, and get broken into all the time,” Wells said. “I have never had the electrical meter stolen before.”
