Lufkin authorities are looking for a cigarette thief. The woman has now hit at least three Lufkin convenience stores. The Chevron on the West loop was the latest target.
The woman goes into stores asking for a couple of cartons of cigarettes. When the cashier puts them on the counter, she will ask for another carton. When the cashier turns around, the woman takes off with the cigarettes.
After the latest theft, the cashier ran after her. That is when the driver of the car the suspect got into pointed a gun at the cashier, making the crime a robbery. The cashier went back inside and was not hurt.
The suspect is described as a 30-year-old, white female, about 5 ft. 8 in. and weighing 200 lbs. She got into a mid-80s, blue, Chevrolet Caprice.
If you have any information about the person or persons involved in the robbery, you are asked to call the Lufkin Police Department.
