BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. -- Police are trying to identify a clumsy thief who they say made off with more than $1,300 in cigarettes from a drug store.
Surveillance video showed a man and a woman at a Walgreen's store on South Federal Highway past 3 a.m. on Monday.
The woman distracted the clerk by asking for help with some wart medicine, and after she drew the clerk away from the counter, the man jumped behind the counter and put 25 cartons of cigarettes into a large bag.
But after he jumped back over the counter, he dropped the bag, scattering the cigarette cartons across the floor. He then picked them all up, put them back in the bag, then hustled out of the store.
The man is described as black, in his 30s, wearing a long, white T-shirt with dark Dickie's shorts. The woman, also black, was wearing white medical scrubs. They left together in a newer-model white or silver Ford.
