So what is new about this?

Just another person stealing something to fed an addiction.
At $5+ pack we'll see a lot more cigarette / Tobacco thieves.
Easy to steal, no traceability, Easy to resell on the Gray market even have the Tax Stamp already a fixed.

Besides the biggest thief here is the Government. They jacked the taxes up with the promise to treat smoking cancer victims and spent the $billion$ elsewhere. BTW: I don't smoke.
