A man stole eight packs of cigarettes from a store Monday night, according to Greeneville police.

The suspect went into the Marathon Quick Stop Market in the 800 block of the West Andrew Johnson Highway around 9:30 Monday night and asked to buy a carton of cigarettes. The clerk said she could sell eight separate packs to the man, who went to his vehicle to get his wallet. When the man returned, he asked for a can of tobacco from the clerk. When the woman turned to retrieve the can, the man reportedly grabbed the bag containing the cigarettes and ran out the door.

The clerk said that the man had a beard and was wearing a sleeveless shirt, and was driving a gold vehicle but did not know the make or model. The total value of the cigarettes was $49.
