A sneaky crook hoping to get away with a number of cartons of cigarettes from a local Wal-Mart last Friday in Flour Bluff couldn't escape the eyes of surveillance cameras.

The video footage shows the woman sneaking around an aisle and then grabbing several cartons of cigarettes, stashing them in her purse. She was eventually confronted by management, and then made her escape, taking a spill in the process.

If you recognize the woman, please call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477.
