EWA BEACH, Hawaii (AP) - Honolulu police are looking for four suspects who robbed hundreds of cartons of cigarettes from a delivery truck at gunpoint.

Police say the delivery truck was driving along an Ewa Beach road Tuesday night when a green pickup truck pulled up alongside it. The pickup’s driver brandished a handgun and ordered the delivery truck driver and its passenger to pull over.

The suspects then ordered the delivery truck driver and passenger to lay face-down on the ground.

Police say the men fled with crates containing nearly 300 cartons of cigarettes valued at more than $26,000.

The heist suspects wore black clothes with the lower portion of their faces covered.
