BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Bossier City police have named a suspect in the theft of hundreds of dollars worth of cigarettes from area convenience stores.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Erol Demond Walter, 33 of Shreveport, on a charge of simple robbery. Detectives said they believe Walter is one of several people who have been targeting local Circle K stores.

The thieves have allegedly gone into the stores late at night or early in the morning, asking the clerk to make fresh coffee. While the cashier is distracted, the suspects reportedly go behind the counter and take numerous cartons of cigarettes at a time.

The estimated value of the cartons is about $1,500.

Police were able to identify Walter from a tip to Bossier Crime Stoppers. He is a 6' 1" tall black man who weighs about 200 pounds and reportedly has several tattoos on both arms.

Police are still looking for a woman who they said is the second suspect in this case.

Call Bossier Crime Stoppers at 318-424-4100 or visit www.bossiercrimestoppers.org with more information on Walters' whereabouts or the female suspect.
