An employee at the store told deputies the woman distracted the person at the front counter around 9:30 p.m. on Jan. 19, while the man stole a carton of cigarettes and individual boxes of cigarettes from behind the counter, according to a Columbia County Sheriff's Office incident report.
Another employee returned to the front of the store and saw the man standing next to the shopping carts, according to the report. She also noticed that the door leading to the area behind the registers was swinging, as if someone had just left the area.
