$8,000 worth of cigarettes reported stolen from Loudoun gas station

More than a quick smoke was on the mind of a suspected thief who reportedly stole more than $8,000 worth of cigarettes from a storage box at an Exxon gas station in Loudoun County.

The county sheriff’s office said a man driving a bright red, two door coupe broke into a locked container and removed several cases of cigarettes on Feb. 6 at the gas station in the 37200 block of Jefferson Pike in Loudoun near the West Virginia line.

The car had its left fog light out and a large dent on the passenger side near the front fender, according to the sheriff’s office, as well as a sun roof and a small rear spoiler.

A private reward of $2,500 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and indictment in the case.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Detective J. Sullivan at 571-258-3181 at, or to remain anonymous callers may contact Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.
