NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Police released surveillance video of two men slamming their SUV into a gas station so one could break inside and steal cigarettes.

The incident occurred around 1:10 a.m. at the Shell station located on the corner of Massman Drive and Elm Hill Pike in south Nashville.

Clear surveillance shows a gold SUV pull up to the station.  The passenger gets out and tries to enter the store, but eventually the driver slams into the front doors to gain entry.

The passenger is then seen video running into the store, going behind the counter and grabbing as many packs of Newport cigarettes as he can.

He then flees the store.  The driver is never shown on the video.

The gas station was closed at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspects or vehicle is urged to contact Metro police at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
