Suspects sought in cell phone heist

THREE MEN are sought in the armed robbery of a cell phone store in Garden Grove.

Three suspects are being sought in connection with the armed robbery of a cell phone store in Garden Grove Monday afternoon.

According to Sgt. Juan Centeno of the GGPD, the incident occurred around 3:40 p.m. at the Metro PCS store at 12881 Haster St. Three male suspects entered the store and asked about cell phones. One of them pulled a handgun from his waistband, showing it to the clerk, and returning it there.

Two of the suspects entered the stockroom and took “a large amount” of cellphones, then opened the cash register and took currency, before fleeing on foot.

They were last seen walking southbound on Haster Street away from the store. Arriving officers checked the area and were unable to locate the suspects.

The suspects are described as:

  • a male Hispanic, 20 to 25 years old, 6-feet tall, 180 lbs., wearing a black sweatshirt and jeans, white shoes and a backpack. The weapon he carried was a dark gray, large handgun, possibly a revolver.
  • a male Hispanic, 20-25 years old, 5-feet, 8-inches tall, 180 lbs, wearing a blue jacket and jeans and a baseball hat.
  • a male Hispanic, 20-25 years old, 5-feet, 8-inches tall, wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with black sleeves, black jeans, black shoes and sunglasses.

Anyone with information about the robbery is encouraged to call the GGPD’s Crimes Against Persons Bureau at (714) 714-741-5800.
