A THIEF caused thousands of dollars damage to a Pearsall liquor store all for some packets of cigarettes and bottles of spirits on Tuesday.
Police believe the offender, who may have been with others, attempted to crash a car through bollards at the Brooklyn Avenue business about 3.50am but was unsuccessful.
The thief then smashed a glass panel and forced open a roller door before fleeing with the goods.
Officers would like to speak with anyone who was in the area at the time or who has any helpful information.
