Aurora Police have released surveillance photos of three suspects wanted in the armed robbery of an AT&T Cell Phone store in the 2300 block of North Farnsworth Avenue.
At around 8:05 p.m., Aug. 14, two of the suspects, at least one of whom was armed, approached a 33-year-old woman and 22-year-old man who were working in the store. They proceeded to announce the robbery, and led the victims to a backroom where they were joined by the third suspect. They then gained a key to a room where new merchandise is kept and helped themselves to about $33,000 worth of phones, IPADS, tablets, and other merchandise.
The three made off in what appeared to be a champagne or gold-colored Chevrolet Blazer. They may have also had a second vehicle which appeared to be an older, red, two-door Honda Civic with aftermarket headlights and the rear window painted black with a white cross or emblem on it.
The suspects are all black males. The two who originally entered the store are 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall, respectively. The shorter of the pair appeared to be 18 to 23, had long, black hair, a tattoo in the left center of his neck, and sported studded earrings. He was wearing a white shirt, dark pants, and a beige floppy hat. The taller man was described as being in his early 20’s and wore a black t-shirt, light-colored jeans, and a black hat.
The third suspect in the back of the store was also in his early 20s, 6 feet tall, with short black hair and wore a beige shirt with blue stripes and blue jeans.
