Investigators are looking for a man who broke into three local convenience stores Monday and stole cigarettes.

In each case, the burglar smashed the glass door or window at the stores and robbed the business of Newport cigarettes, Richmond County Sheriff's Investigator Aaron Hannsz said.

The robberies occurred at McTeer Food and Fuel on 4150 Windsor Spring Road, McTeer Shell Station at 1237 Gordon Highway and Wally's on 4250 Windsor Spring Road, according to a sheriff's report. They all occurred between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.

In the final break-in, Investigator Hannsz said the suspect also stole one beer from the store.

“I guess he was done for the day so he took a beer with him,” he said.

Anyone with information on the burglar can call the sheriff's office at (706) 821-1080 or (706) 821-1020.
