PHOENIX -- Silent Witness is offering up to a thousand dollar reward in the case of two men who have been stealing cigarettes from convenience stores around the valley.

So far the suspects have struck at least six times throughout the Phoenix area. They’ve hit Circle K stores, Walgreens locations, and have even stolen from store employees.

All the robberies happened between Nov. 6 and Nov. 18.

Police say the suspects walk into the stores, and go directly to the cigarette display.

They remove packs and cartons of cigarettes, then flee the scene.  The men have reportedly used physical force in some of the robberies.

The first suspect is described as a light skinned black or Hispanic male, 20-30 years old, 5’11”, and thin.

The second suspect is described as a black male, 30-40 years old, 5’11”, medium build, with prescription glasses.

Witnesses describe the suspect vehicles as a newer model red two door vehicle, and a blue four door jeep.

If you have any information about this crime please contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480 948-6377) or visit their website.
