Police issued a "be on the lookout" for a man they say was involved in a smash and grab crime

HUBBARD TWP., Ohio (WYTV) – Hubbard Township police are working to identify a suspect in a recent smash and grab at a convenience store.

The incident was caught on surveillance video.

It happened at 1:30 a.m. Sunday at the Valero Save-A-Step Food Mart at the corner of Youngstown-Hubbard and Jacobs roads.

Police said the suspect used a gray or silver GMC Sonoma to smash the glass doors of the business, causing about $7,500 in damages.

Video shows the man then going into the store twice to take $1,100 worth of cigarettes. He was last seen driving down McGuffey Road.

Police are investigating a possible connection to a similar incident in Mahoning County.

“Coitsville Township had an incident — same vehicle, same suspect — that occurred on the 7th of April,” said Det. Sgt. Mike Begeot.

If you have any information on who the man is, call the Hubbard Township Police Department at 330-534-8477, ext. 350.
