Police are investigating a couple of smash and grab burglaries where thieves stole hundreds of dollars worth of cigarettes.

The first place hit was a Broken Arrow Texaco late New Year's Eve. Thieves broke out a window and stole several cartons of cigarettes.

Then early Monday morning, crooks smashed out the front door of the Drug Warehouse at 31st and Harvard. They filled a plastic trash can with cartons of cigarettes and took off before police arrived.

Tulsa Police detectives say they've made several arrests but say they have a few more to go in the case.
