Police in Mount Laurel, N.J., are looking for a man who they say posed as a Wawa employee in order to rob Wawa Store No. 960 on Route 73.

The theft, police say, took place on August 12th. A man wearing Wawa’s summer Hoagiefest uniform — a Wawa hat, the blue Hoagiefest t-shirt and khakis — entered the store and swiped $380 worth of cigarette cartons. With New Jersey retail carton prices at around $76 for cigarettes, the thief got away with five cartons. (Man, smokes are expensive now! I bought my uncle a carton of cigarettes for Christmas one year when I was 18, and paid about $30. That was in 2001, but still.)

Mt. Laurel cops also said this $380 thief had an accomplice. The second suspect acted as a lookout and stayed on the phone the entire time.
