MARSHALL COUNTY, OK--Authorities in Marshall County need the public's help identifying a man caught on surveillance camera breaking into a local convenience store all for just three packs of cigarettes.

 Surveillance video shows a man shattering the front door of the Circle G convenience store on Highway 32 in Kingston shortly before 6 a.m. Tuesday.

It may be common for a burglar to break into a business to steal money; this one just wanted three packs of cigarettes.

"It's hard for me to imagine that someone would risk going to prison for three packages of cigarettes," said Marshall County Resident Francis Nelson.

Nelson has lived in Marshall County for more than 20 years and although he said he's seen break in's before, this one Maybe the most bizarre.

"I don't understand that kind of thinking, I don't know how much cigarette's cost, but surely he had enough money to buy cigarettes as oppose to stealing them," said Nelson.


The store manager did not want to appear on camera but said he was surprised to find a shattered glass when he came into work.

Marshall County sheriff Ed Kent said he arrived seconds after it happened.


"We were here within 15 or 20 seconds after the alarm went off and he already had made his escape," said Kent.

The man is described as a white male approximately 45 years old and about 5'8 to 6 ft tall, driving a dark red 90's model Chevrolet pickup truck.

"We're hoping that someone can identify him and contact the Marshall County sheriff's office," said Kent

Officials said no one was at the store at the time of the break in.
