TULSA, OKLAHOMA – Tulsa Police hope surveillance video will help nab two thieves who are stealing cigarettes from Tulsa convenience stores.

One video shows the two suspects breaking into a convenience store at 36th and Harvard. You can see the suspects rummage through cabinets and drawers.

In surveillance video from another convenience store burglary one of the suspects emptied the drawers before taking off with cigarettes. 

Tulsa police said the crooks steal the cigarettes, then resell them on the street for a profit.

Police believe the same suspects are responsible for at least five or six convenience store burglaries in the Tulsa area since the end of June.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 596-COPS.
