‘Nicotine Ninja’ suspected of Denver-area burglaries
DENVER, Colorado ” Jefferson County authorities are looking a man they’ve dubbed the “Nicotine Ninja” believed to be responsible for stealing $120,000 worth of cigarettes.
Authorities say the suspect is completely clad in dark clothing and covers half his face with a black cloth when he breaks into liquor stores in the middle of the night. The man is believed to be responsible for 118 burglaries across the metro area during the last two years.
Authorities say he usually only takes brand-name cigarettes and ignores the generic brands.
A survey showed a good bit of support for local government action to bolster workforce housing in town. For now though, that support stops at supporting a new tax for funding.
