The Lufkin Police Department is searching for two thieves who robbed a Family Dollar store of hundreds of dollars worth of cigarettes earlier this month.
The robbery was at the store on the 2500 block of E Denman Ave. back on May 5. The video shows a pair of black males who worked to distract the employee.
The first male was described as having shoulder-length hair and moved the employee away from the counter by asking questions about dog food.
The second male, wearing a cammo Texas Longhorns hat and a yellow safety vest, took a plastic bin behind the counter and filled it with cartons of cigarettes.
He then loaded the bin into a blue, four-door car—possibly a Chevrolet Malibu—and waited for his partner.
The first male then finished his conversation with the employee and walked out of the store and into the passenger seat of the car.
