Del Ray Cigars & More has had two break-ins over the course of ten days, NBC4 reported.

Security camera footage from Sunday, March 5, showed a man smashing the large glass window, going behind the counter, and stealing disposable vape pens and other items. He dropped the items off at a waiting car, then returned to steal more.

Ten days earlier, NBC4 reported that the store had another break-in where thieves smashed through the front door.

The store opened last year and staff told NBC4 the thieves have been expensive and disheartening, and that the store may have to add metal bars to the windows to prevent future burglaries.
