Sounds like he blended in with the crowd. With all the 'unknowns' doesn't sound like a solvable crime.

No not kidding...why would I kid you? I suppose this has racial overtones, huh? I am not hip to what a group drinks or smokes but have heard and read the jokes about malt liquor drinkers.

ACTUALLY THERE IS NOTHING RACIAL ABOUT IT BUT NEWPORTS ARE THE PREFERRED BRAND OF CIGARETTE AMONG BLACK FOLK JUST AS MARLBOROS AND WINSTONS ARE PREFERRED BY WHITES. I'M NOT TALKING EXCLUSIVE, JUST PREDOMINATLY. MALT LIQUOR HAS NEVER BEEN MARKETED TO WHITES. IT'S CHEAP AND HIGH IN ALCOHOL CONTENT. YOU WON'T GENERALLY FIND IT ON ANY MENU WHERE BEER IS SERVED.

Thanks, dickyboy.....egads!! he is selling them at 50 cents a pop, huh? How much is a pack of Newports? I have seen signs in my travels thru Southwest Georgia and East Alabama where they advertise them at just under $4 a pack.

Time for me to get on the bus, huh? I have been schooled...thanks!!!!

There you go, ask Jimmies who smokes this brand. You can probably get a few suspects from them. But why would you break in a pharmacy and get only cigarettes. All those controlled substances would have given you big bucks to buy ciga-ciggs.
