BLUFFTON, SC (WCSC) -

Beaufort County authorities are looking for a pair of shoplifters they say got away with theft twice in a matter of minutes.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office released stills from a surveillance camera taken inside a Bluffton store on Monday, April 7th at approximately 7:23 p.m. showing a couple entering the store.

Deputies say the female removed her hoodie and stood by the cash register, while the male went to the back of the store, reached over the counter and took two cartons of cigarettes which he concealed in his pants.

After leaving the store, authorities say they returned moments later and the man stole two packs of cigarettes.

The couple may have left the scene in a white Ford F-150 Supercrew Dually that may be missing its tailgate, according to the report.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (843) 554-1111.
