The suspects are both black and between the age of 19-25 years of age.

I was thinking, how can these guys get $3,000 worth of cigarettes that easily? Then I realized that at at $15 a pack, that is really only 200 packs, or 20 cartons. That could be a lucrative business.

These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
