DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police are asking the public for help identifying three suspects who stole several packages of cigarettes from a dollar store on the city’s west side.

The second suspect is described as a black male wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans. The third suspect is described as a black male wearing a black shirt, dark-colored pants and a black hat.
