Two More AT&T Stores Hit by Smash and Grab Phone Bandits

What’s odd is that so far they have only hit AT&T stores. Either some other retailer is using some seriously unfair tactics to close down the competition or the black market gets some sort of great deal on AT&T service.

Finally a decent crime report from

GREER — Cell phones were stolen from two more AT&T stores early this morning after three suspects entered the businesses, cleared out inventory and left within minutes, authorities said.

Greer Police responded to the first robbery on 215 W. Wade Hampton Bllvd. at 6:04 a.m. Video surveillance showed three men between 21 and 30 years old entering the store dressed in dark hooded sweatshirts and wearing black gloves, according to incident reports.

The suspects took an undetermined number of cell phones of different makes and models, along with phone accessories, one report said.

At 6:12 a.m., officers responded to a second AT&T robbery at 5322 Wade Hampton Blvd. Three male suspects used a crow bar to gain entry into the store and then into a locked room that held inventory, according to a report.

The gang has made off with $30,000+ worth of merchandise and they show no signs of stopping. They have been caught on video and don’t wear masks though so I doubt these are pros.

Fox Carolina has a link to surveillance video of the gang.

WYFF points out that the men seem to be extremely familiar with these stores layouts. They also have more detailed descriptions.
