MILFORD, Conn. (AP) – Milford police say more than $90,000 in cigarettes were stolen over the weekend from a local business that supplies items to convenience stores.

Police say more than 1,500 cartons of cigarettes and an undetermined amount of health and beauty supplies were taken in the burglary early Saturday at Montano Cigarette, Candy and Tobacco on Boston Post Road.

Officials say a large truck used in the burglary was stolen from a local rental business.

Video surveillance shows the perpetrators damaged the burglar alarms and disrupted phone and electricity services to the building. Then, they climbed a ladder to an adjacent building’s roof, disabled other alarms and punched holes in the roof over the business to get inside.

The incident remained under investigation Sunday.
