Police are trying to identify a clumsy burglar who stole more than $1,300 in cigarette cartons from a Walgreens on South Federal Highway early Monday.
Surveillance video shows a man and woman walking toward the store around 3:13 a.m. The woman engaged a clerk in conversation about help finding wart medicine.
As they walked toward the back of the store, the man jumped over the front counter and put 25 cartons of cigarettes into a large bag.
The thief then jumped back over the counter and dropped the bag, scattering cigarette cartons across the floor of the store. He picked them all up, put them back into the bag and fled.
The man is described as a black male about 30 years old wearing a long white T-shirt and brown or black Dickie’s work shorts. The woman is a black female who was wearing all white medical scrubs.
They fled in a newer model white or silver Ford.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Midian Diaz at 561-742-6113 or Sgt. Frank Ranzie at 561-742-6132 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 800-458-TIPS.
