Police need your help identifying a pair of suspects who have stolen multiple cartons of cigarettes from different convenience stores around Bossier City.

Over the past several weeks two individuals have entered Circle K stores during the late night or early morning hours and ask the clerk to make fresh coffee.

While the clerk is distracted the suspects go behind the counter and take numerous cartons of cigarettes.  The estimated value of the cartons is around $1,500.00.

A $600 reward is being offered in this case.  Anyone with information about the identity of the suspects is urged to contact Bossier Crime Stoppers (318) 424-4100.
