Three men in Tennessee allegedly covered their faces using surgical masks in a purported attempt to shield their identities from the authorities when they reportedly stole thousands of dollars’ worth of cigarettes from a delivery truck.

On March 16, a delivery driver parked his truck on the side of the convenience store area at an Exxon gas station in Memphis and departed the vehicle.

When he peered back at his truck, the driver reported that he spotted a few people hurriedly removing many boxes filled with the cigarettes intended for his deliveries and placing them into a dark van.
