HOUSTON –- Houston police searched early Wednesday for four cigarette thieves who broke into a Kroger grocery store near The Heights.
The crime was reported shortly after 4 a.m. on Studemont Street just south of I-10.
The men forced their way into the store, which was closed at the time, and stole cigarette packages off the shelves. Police said workers were in the store and re-stocking at the time, but no injuries were reported.
Witnesses said the suspects left in a gold SUV, which was reportedly later found abandoned in a nearby neighborhood.
