CUMMING, Ga. — A hooded suspect broke into a gas station and stole four packs of cigarettes, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

At about 1:30 a.m. June 23, deputies were dispatched to the Phillips 66 gas station, 2380 Pilgrim Mill Road, after the motion alarm was tripped.

When deputies arrived, they saw the side-entry glass door had been smashed.

Deputies said the suspect used a rock to break the glass and gain entry.

Inside, deputies said they did not find anyone and nothing seem tampered with.

They only found a few packs of Camel brand cigarettes on the floor by the broken door.

Deputies said an exterior camera was pointing up instead of toward the door.

After the owner arrived, they reviewed the video surveillance that showed the exterior camera being pointed up at about 1:20 a.m. Then, an inside camera captured two suspects standing outside.

One man wearing jeans, a hoodie and a plastic face mask who broke into the store, stole three or four packs of cigarettes and ran.

The suspects were last seen headed toward the Shady Shores subdivision.
