BRIEF: 31 iPhones, cash stolen from Radio Shack in Royal Oak Township
Feb 04, 2013 (Detroit Free Press - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Two thieves made off with more than 30 iPhones during a robbery Sunday of a Radio Shack in Royal Oak Township, according to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
The two men entered the Radio Shack in the 8800 block of West 8 Mile at 2:59 p.m. Sunday wearing masks, the clerk told investigators. One of the men pointed a semiautomatic handgun at her, ordered her out from behind the counter and they forced her to open a safe in a back room that contained 31 iPhones. They then ordered her to empty $118 from the cash register before escaping in a green Dodge van last seen driving toward Westview, according to the sheriff's office. Investigators recovered the van today in Royal Oak Township and are combing it for evidence. It was reported stolen from Detroit.
The thieves are described as between 20 and 30 years old, one about 6-feet to 6-feet 2-inches tall with a large build and the other between 5-feet-10 and 5-feet-11 with a medium build. Both were wearing dark clothing.
