Orlando police continue to search for a couple who stole all the cigarettes from a Walgreens.

The theft happened around 4:10 a.m. Thursday at the Walgreens at 5501 South Kirkman Road.

An employee said he approached the couple when the man said, "I don't have time for it, I have a gun."

The couple was last seen getting into a gold-colored or tan minivan.

The man was wearing a black shirt, black jeans and white shoes, and the woman was wearing a brown dress, but a detailed description of the couple was not released.

No one was injured in the incident.
