Four men stole more than $2,500 worth of cigarette from a Royal Farms store and fled on foot.

Baltimore County Police are asking the public to help identify four men who they say are responsible for a grand theft of cigarettes at a Royal Farms store on Wilkens Avenue.

At 12:10 a.m. on April 13, four men bought some items at Royal Farms on the 4000 block of Wilkens Avenue in Baltimore, according to a statement released by police. After that, three of the men walked behind the counter and took cartons of Newport cigarettes valued at more than $2,500.

They then ran off eastbound on Wilkens Avenue, according to the statement.

All four suspects are described as black males in their 20s. Two of them were about 5-foot-10-inches tall, 130 pounds, with thin builds, brown eyes and black hair. Surveillance photos are attached to this article. 

Anyone with information about the suspects’ identities is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020.

Police are offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of suspects.

seems like the city is bleeding into our community. I certainly hope that our police force is up to the task of establishing Arbutus, Catonsville, Violetville, Rely, etc. as "no bleed zones" show strong presents and arrest any whom dare come to our towns to prey on our community. Car Jacking on Deloris by the University, the man was jacked, robbed, held at gun point, wtf? I didn't buy a home in this community to watch it turn into just another getto pocket, as you find all over the city right now. What are the city council, police dept., Chamber of Commerce doing to address this?
