A bold thief loaded cartons of cigarettes into a black garbage bag in a late-afternoon smash-and-grab burglary of an Algiers grocery store.

The NOPD says the man smashed the front window of the Winn Dixie in the 3000 block of Holiday drive at 4:19 p.m. on November 16.

The burglar went inside and loaded cartons of cigarettes into the bag, then took off.

Investigators are hoping someone will recognize the thief in an image taken from surveillance video.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Tianay Marshall or any Fourth District detective at 504-658-6040.
