BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man involved in an unusual theft.

Detectives say James Taylor Beaver crawled thru the ceiling tile of the bathroom at the Quick and Easy Citgo Station at the intersection of Holden Beach and Seashore Roads.

Once inside the store, Beaver stuffed as many cartons of cigarettes into his jacket as he could, would crawl out and then repeat the cycle.

According to investigators, Beaver made off with nearly 20 cartons of cigarettes.

Anyone with information about Beaver's whereabouts is asked to call the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office, 910-253-2777.
