BURGLARS in the South have stolen a large quantity of tobacco products from a supermarket.
Thieves broke into the IGA supermarket in Charles Street, Orford, at bout 1.17am today.
They stole a large amount of cigarettes and tobacco products.
Bellerive Detective Sergeant Terry McCulloch said police believed that insurance would not fully cover the value of the stolen goods, so the burglary would have a significant impact on the business and its owners.
``Members of the public are asked to be on the look-out for anyone offering cheap tobacco products for sale,'' he said.
``Brands stolen include: Peter Jackson, Longbeach, Benson and Hedges, Holidays, Winfield, Champion, Bank, Drum and White Ox.
``Significant rewards are available for any information leading to the arrest of offenders involved in this type of crime.''
Police urge anyone with information about the break-in and theft to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Bellerive Criminal Investigation Branch on 6230 2840, quoting offence report 474583.
