PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Police need your help identifying a suspect in the theft of cigarettes from a Phoenix convenience store.

The man, who is between 20 and 25 years old, has targeted the same Circle K store multiple times since Dec. 17, 2016, Silent Witness Sgt. Jamie Rothschild said.

The suspect follows a similar routine each time. He goes behind the counter of the store at 625 W. Bell Rd., grabs cartons of cigarettes and leaves without paying for them, Rothschild said.

Surveillance images show the man is about 5’7” tall and weighs around 140 pounds. He has blond hair and is clean shaven.

The suspect was last wearing a black and gray horizontal and vertical-striped hooded sweatshirt.

People with any knowledge of their whereabouts are asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-948-6377) or 480-TESTIGO.

"We'd also like anyone who has been asked to buy any of these stolen cigarettes to call with information even if they don't know the suspect's name or current location," Rothschild said. 

The public can also call Silent Witness detectives toll-free at 1-800-343-TIPS (1-800-343-8477).

Your call will remain anonymous.
