So, 2 boxes of 555. Would that be 1,110 cigarettes?

I was trying to figure out the math on this. It appears that what the pilfering man has are two master cases. These contain 50 cartons (500 packs.) or 10,000 cigarettes. State 555s are relatively expensive, but cigarettes are so cheap here that each case is probably only worth $500 or something.

Don't be silly. If you're going to get banged up for stealing a couple of cartons of smokes, at least steal Chunghwas.
You could be next.
