A West Ashley supermarket was broken into early Tuesday by a man who stole only cigarettes, according to a Charleston police report.
Shortly after 4 a.m., police were dispatched to the Food Lion at 2144 Savannah Highway for a burglary alarm. Officers used a tracking dog to search the store, and no one was found.
A piece of concrete was used to smash a front window of the store to gain entry, the police report said.
A surveillance video shows a man jumping over the counter and grabbing eight cartons of cigarettes, valued at $400, the report said.
The store manager showed police a video of a similar incident that took place a week earlier, when a man smashed the window and stole cartons of cigarettes.
The suspect was described as a white man, 25 to 35 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall and 160 to 170 pounds.
He was wearing a black shirt with a skeleton design on the front.
He had a black shirt over his head and was wearing black shorts, black Nike tennis shoes with a white swoosh emblem and white ankle socks.
He wore socks on his hands as he entered the store, according to the report.
He might have a tattoo on his right hand and possibly a tattoo on the left side of his neck, the report said.
Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111 or Charleston police at 577-7434.
