Police have identified a suspect in a smash and grab burglary where nearly $4,000 in cigarettes were stolen from a York County convenience store.

David Roy Guisewhite, 54, remains at-large, however, and should be considered dangerous, Newberry Township police said in a news release Wednesday.

Guisewhite is accused of using a rock to smash the front glass door of the Sunoco gas station at 2200 Old Trail Road in Etters, then stealing more than $3,900 in cigarettes on May 24.

He was operating a GMC U-Haul truck with a large panda decal on the side, police said.

Police said they located the truck Tuesday and tried to stop it, but Guisewhite fled on foot and was last seen in the area of Old Trail and Yocumtown roads around 9:30 p.m.

He is previously from New York state, but may still be in central Pennsylvania.

He has been charged with burglary, criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property, criminal mischief and possession of instruments of crime.

Guisewhite is also believed to be involved in other burglaries in York County and Maryland.

One similar crime occurred May 27 at the Dillsburg Tobacco Outlet. In that case, police said a man broke through the front door and stole several cartons of cigarettes before fleeing in a GMC U-Haul, also with a Panda graphic on the passenger side of the cargo box.

Anyone with information on Guisewhite's whereabouts is asked to call police though 911.
