Four men broke into a Chesterfield Township smoke shop around 6:05 a.m. Tuesday, making off with approximately $10,000 of cigarettes and cigars, police said Thursday.
Chesterfield Township officers responded to a burglar alarm at the Tobacco Barn at 46476 Gratiot. Police found the front door glass smashed and the store ransacked, according to Detective Sgt. Deron Myers.
Store surveillance video showed that, minutes before officers arrived, four men forced their way into the store, loaded a large amount of cigarettes into garbage bags and left out the front door, Myers said.
A witness told police the suspects left in a blue mid-1990s minivan that was parked in front of the store, he said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Joseph Feld at 586-949-3304 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
