Nearly $15,000 dollars worth of cell phones were stolen from a Verizon Wireless store in the Parkville-Carney area during an overnight burglary on Monday.
Around 3:39 a.m. two men entered the store in the 2000 block of E. Joppa Road by using a key to unlock the front door, police said. The two men walked to a closet, used a crowbar to pry it open and stole cell phones, placing them into a plastic bag, police said.
In total, they stole 13 iPhone 4S, two Samsung Galaxy III, four Samsung Galaxy Note II, an iPhone 5 and an Droid DNA. Police said the total value of the phones is listed as $14,536.
Police have released a basic description of the suspects: saying only that the crime was committed by two men dressed in black from head-to-toe, wearing black full-faced ski masks and plastic gloves.
The burglary is just the latest in a series of burglaries at Verizon Wireless stores around Baltimore and Harford Counties, including two that occurred at the same store in the 2000 block of E. Joppa Road.
In all of the burglaries a key was used to get inside the store.
