Shotgun-toting man gets cash, cigarettes in Crofton robbery

Armed with a shotgun, having just relieved a 7-Eleven clerk of cash, the suspect was certainly in a position to pay for his smokes.

Instead, Anne Arundel police say, he grabbed several packs of cigarettes, stuffed them into his black duffel bag, and ran into a wooded area.

The robbery occurred about 5 a.m. Monday along the 800 block of Route 3 South in Crofton, according to police.

Police described the suspect as a black man, about 5' 10" tall, with an average build, all black clothing and a black mask over the lower part of his face.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Eric Wills at 410-222-3432 or 410-222-3566.

With a $1 per pack tax, I can almost understand it.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say the stolen smokes were Newports.
