Columbia County authorities are trying to identify a man they say jumped the counter of a Martinez drug store and stole cigarettes.
A CVS cashier said just after 5 p.m. on Jan. 29, a man jumped over the counter at the store at 4476 Columbia Road. The cashier told the man he wasn’t allowed behind the counter, according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report.
The man grabbed three cartons of Newport cigarettes and walked out the front door. He left in a green Dodge Neon headed south on Belair Road.
Anyone with information about the man’s identity or whereabouts should call the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 541-2800.
