MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) -- A cigarette delivery truck was parked at an East Memphis gas station when police say two men went inside it stole more than $11,000 worth of cigarettes. It was the second time this week criminals used surgical masks to conceal their faces, police say.
Video from the scene showed them loading boxes of cigarettes into their van with the delivery guy still in view.
Tuesday morning, an armed robber walked into a Cricket store on South Third. He was also wearing a surgical mask.
Despite their disguises, police said they were able to arrest this pair because they were also following that cigarette truck.
C.W. Williams and Martavious Farley were charged with theft and evading arrest.
Police said they are still searching for the other robber.
