One could call it the lung cancer caper.
Miami-Dade Police are looking for four men who broke into a warehouse and made off with $115,000 worth of cigarettes.
The burglary happened around 5 a.m. Dec. 18 at 3580 NW 119th St., just down the street from Miami-Dade College’s North Campus. Detectives said four men broke into the business, a distributing company, by busting a metal security door. The men then ransacked the business, stealing a ton of tobacco.
Police don’t have information for the getaway vehicle. Video surveillance shows the suspects putting the cigarette boxes into carts before leaving.
