BUTTE – Police across the state are searching for two suspects they say are buying thousands of dollars’ worth of cigarettes on other people’s dime. Police say two black males are traveling across the state using stolen credit cards in at least a dozen convenient stores.
Butte police said they can think of only one reason for the unusually large amount of cigarettes purchased. “Resale, I mean that’s one of the only explanations, I mean common sense explanation you could give it would be for resale. Either transport out of state to resale in other states or resale here,” said Skuletich.
