Two thieves steel $6,000 of cigarettes, clerk clueless.

Two thieves in matching hats stole more than $6,000 in cigarettes in a daytime caper at a North Lauderdale convenience store – all while the clerk stood by unaware.

With surveillance cameras rolling, the brazen duo walked into Aunt Molly’s convenience store shortly before noon March 5. As one man distracted the clerk, his partner went into an office and shoved several boxes of cigarettes under his sweater. He walked outside and put the stolen smokes into to a white minivan. Then he returned to the office, loaded up a garbage bag with more cigarettes, walked right past the clerk at the cash register and put them in the minivan.

Then, in a final brazen move, he snuck into the office a third time, grabbed a large box filled with cartons of cigarettes and, without concealing them, walked out of the store with the box.

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are hoping someone might recognize the two thieves, who appear to be in their 40s or 50s, wore long pants, dark sweat shirts and beige skull caps. One is about 6-foot-2, 210 pounds and the other is 5-foot-10, 180 pounds.

Anyone with information about this crime can contact Det. Roger Peterson at (or report it anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS or online at
