Qld bandit stages sneaky smokes heist

A Queensland thief has staged a break-in within a break-in, before making off with a haul of cigarettes.

The bandit first broke into a vacant store in Townsville and proceeded to knock a hole in an internal wall in order to gain access to a tobacconist's store room next door.

The masked man fled with his booty just before 1am on Tuesday.
