One man walked up to the counter, where he had three packs of cigarettes, a lighter and some items from the grill. The man reached in his pocket and his companion walked over and questioned why he was paying for the items. “We don’t pay for stuff. We take it,” said the man, who then he walked outside to a waiting car driven by a woman. The man at the counter then grabbed the items off the counter and fled out the door and got inside the car, which drove off. The thief was described only as a white man and the car described only as white.
