Lufkin Police have arrested a man accused of breaking into a pharmacy with a rock in February and stealing cigarettes.

Cody Wayne LeBlanc, 20, of Lufkin, was arrested on the offense of burglary of a building.

Back in February, Lufkin Police Officers responded to CVS Pharmacy on Lufkin Avenue in reference to a burglary alarm. Officers arrived and found that the front glass door had been shattered, according to the report.

After reviewing surveillance footage, officers began looking for a slim black man who threw a rock at the front door, according to the report.

The suspect jumped over the counter and took several packs of cigarettes then fled the scene.

In April, a warrant was issued for LeBlanc, who matched the description of the burglary. LeBlanc had been recently released from state prison for burglary, according to the report.

The burglary matched the same method used by LeBlanc in past burglaries, according to the report.

A detective went to a residence on Wood Street in Lufkin and spoke with LeBlanc's grandfather. The detective showed the grandfather still photos from the surveillance tape and was able to make a positive identification of LeBlanc as the suspect, according to the report.

Bail for LeBlanc has been set at $1,500. He has not yet been released.
