ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

The Limestone County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help in identifying a burglary suspect who hit the same store twice in as many weeks.

The S&Z Grocery Store on Highway 72 West of Athens was first burglarized on Nov. 30, then again early Monday morning, by who investigators believe to be the same person.

In each case, the target of the burglar was the store's supply of cigarettes; over 20 cartons were taken in the November crime, over 50 in Monday's burglary.

Anyone with information on the burglaries is asked to contact the Limestone County Sheriff's Office.
