Caryville Police took to Facebook Thursday as they seek information on the suspects who stole dozens of cartons of cigarettes from a store last weekend.
The Caryville Police Department says that officers were called to the Shell gas station at 204 Howard Baker Highway at around 5:45 am on Saturday, January 9th on a report of a break-in.
Officers quickly determined that the suspects had gained entry to the business by smashing a front window with a large rock. Once inside, investigators say that the suspect or suspects stole over 150 cartons of cigarettes and fled in a dark-colored car.
The business owners are offering a $1000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible. The Caryville PD shared photographs from store security footage of both a suspect and a vehicle, and you can also see some of those photos on our website.
If you have information, contact Caryville Police by phone at 423-562-9478, or message them through Facebook.
