Police in Nebraska are looking for a man who stole cigarettes while disguising himself with a beer carton.

The man walked into a Kwik Shop convenience store before dawn Monday wearing an empty Bud Light box on his head as a mask, said Lincoln police Capt. Bob Kawamoto.

The man also had wrapped something around one of his hands, suggesting he was armed, said Kawamoto. But the man never showed a weapon.

The bandit left with nine packs of smokes valued at nearly $50, police said.

Police did not respond to calls seeking additional details on Tuesday.
