Thieves break into shop for broken phones

Mobile County

This security video shows us two people in masks hanging around outside–before one jumps through a smashed window. While these may look like smartphones, the manager says they’re display phones: just shells and spare parts.

At one point, one of the people isn’t sure what to grab.  The suspect seems to realize a lot of what they’re picking up is hollow.  

“I was surprised, I didn’t expect anything in this neighborhood especially Lakeside,” said manager Jaimie Gray.  Gray says he saw the mess Monday morning.  In addition to the theft caught on camera, the duo apparently broke into the window of a nearby office and stole a lot more.

“From AZ phone repair just a couple of parts and broken phones but from a store that’s right beside us a couple of laptops, TVs and speakers were stolen,” said Gray.  The people who work here say they hope whoever did this is caught soon.

“When it happened to us we were more or less confused on who would do it and why they would do it,” said Gray.  The store is offering a $2,500 cash reward for information that leads to an arrest.
