Local police are investigating more brazen thefts of cigarettes from area stores -- this time behind the counter at a Wawa in Upper Darby.
Police in Upper Darby have released surveillance video and photos from two incidents occuring earlier this month. Both took place at the Wawa at 5337 Baltimore Pike.
At about 7:30 p.m., April 4, a male is seen walking behind the store's counter and taking two cartons of cigarettes, police said. He arrived at the store with three other males in a white Mitsubishi sedan.
More recently, at 8:34 p.m. on April 20, a group of males and females arrived in the same white Mitsubishi, police said, and one male grabbed a case of cigarettes that had been on the floor behind the counter and left the store with it.

Anyone with information on these suspects should call investigators at 610-734-7677 or 610-734-7693
These alleged thieves were bold but not nearly as daring as a crew wanted in Philadelphia who stole 24 cases of smokes – valued at $64,000 – from a North Philadelphia store.
