Our next suspect threw a fit when things didn’t go exactly to plan. He walked into a cell phone store at 37th Avenue and McDowell in Phoenix on November 14, 2020. It was mid-morning.

“The suspect begins browsing the store and attempts to remove several phones from the display case.”

But, says Reaume, when the guy tried to steal the phones and realized they were connected to the screen, he was frustrated.

“Throw the screen down and damage it and take part of the screen, which was attached to the phone, through the door.”
