Charges are pending against two Nova Scotia men in connection with a reported theft of cigarettes worth approximately $2,500.
Police say officers responded to a service station in Lunenburg, N.S., on March 6 after cigarettes were reportedly stolen.
“Surveillance footage captured the suspect removing a case of cigarettes from a storage room,” Lunenburg RCMP said in a police news release on Wednesday.
On March 9, police obtained a search warrant for a home on the province’s western shore as part of the investigation.
In the search, police say officers recovered a number of reportedly stolen cigarettes, while two men were arrested and taken into custody.
Police say the two men are facing charges of theft under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime.
They have since been released from police custody and are scheduled to appear in Bridgewater provincial court on May 27.
