WENTWORTH – An undetermined quantity of cigarettes were taken after thieves used a stolen truck and trailer to break into a store in Wentworth early in the morning on Dec. 28.
The suspects were observed leaving in two vehicles, one of which was a black Chev truck hauling a black, enclosed dual axel trailer with a company name on the side of it. The second vehicle was described as a crossover SUV or a car.
