Suspects in a robbery at the AT&T store on Alameda and Doddridge not only got away with high-priced electronics, but an employees truck as well.
The robbery happened just before 11 p.m. Sunday night. Police said the store manager was doing some inventory work, and was about to leave for the night, when he was approached by two men in the parking lot.
The suspects forced themselves into the building, took about 10 iPhones and 10 iPads, and then stole the employees truck. The worker was not injured.
The value of the items stolen is about $15,000.
"You look how much cell phones cost, iPads, computers. When you start grabbing a bunch of those things, you're talking a decent amount of money," said Capt. Jerry Vesely of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "However, question is, will they be able to use them if they are not active cell phones? And of course, the store will cancel any serial numbers, so they won't be able to be registered."
Police said the truck was later recovered and will be returned to its owner. The victim didn't know the suspects, though he was able to give the authorities a good description of one of them. He was a Hispanic male, about six-foot-two, and 300-350 pounds.
