Columbia County authorities are looking for a man they say broke into a Martinez convenience store Saturday.

The alarm at Sprint Foods at 3701 Washington Road went off at about 1:15 a.m. The front glass door was broken, but deputies didn’t find anyone inside, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The store supervisor reviewed video surveillance footage, which showed a man in a yellow collared shirt and khaki pants throw a rock through the glass door. The video shows the man walk around the cashiers desk, put about 40 packs of Newport cigarettes in a plastic bag and leave through the broken door, according to the report.

Anyone with information about the man’s identity or whereabouts should call the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 541-2800.
