Mobile phones worth more than £4k stolen from Kidderminster shop
12:47pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in News
THREE people have been arrested after more than £4,000 worth of mobile phones were stolen from a Kidderminster shop.
It happened at O2 in the High Street between about 5pm and 5.20pm yesterday.
Three men went into the shop and began tearing phones off the displays, aggressively warning staff to keep away.
They left on foot carrying 16 phones worth £4,285, including various Blackberry and Samsung Galaxy models and got into a silver Vauxhall Corsa car which is believed to have been parked on the Bromsgrove Street car park.
A vehicle was stopped by police on the A456 at Hagley shortly afterwards and three men in their early 20s from the Middlesex area were arrested on suspicion of robbery and theft.
They are currently in custody at Kidderminster Police Station assisting with inquiries.
Det Sgt Justin Taylor of West Mercia Police said: “Although shops were closing for the evening, there would have been people making their way home from work through the town centre and we are appealing for anyone who saw anything to contact us.”
Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident 501-S-200313, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
