Broad Daylight Robbery At AT&T T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ:TMUS) Stores

Robberies at T-Mobile store in District Heights and an AT&T store in Southeast, D.C, which seems to have been well calculated are still a mystery to the Pittsburg Police Department. The two incidences, which occurred within 30 minutes of each other were carried out in broad daylight at around 4:30 PM. Reliable sources have it that the two unknown gunmen walked into the businesses premises wearing masks and gloves while displaying at least one handgun.

Two unsuspecting employees and three customers were asked to leave the stock area as the gunmen picked on several valuables. Apart from stealing an undisclosed amount of Bluetooth headphones and Bluetooth speakers sources have that they also took away nearly $30,000 in cash and cell phones. There is a speculation of a third suspect who may have been waiting in a white-colored truck, which was used by the robbers to flee.

But how did the robbers gain entry into the store?

The question, which is being asked by many is yet to get answers. However, Hyattsville resident Rocky Kaslov says the gunmen had done their homework and calculated their moves pretty well. They must have known about the arrival of a new shipment thus staging the bold and straight daytime move.

Police are reported to be spending sleepless hours reviewing surveillance video from the T-Mobile trying to get a grip on everything unfolded. They are also accessing videos from adjacent businesses, which are likely to help in compiling more data about the incidence.

On the other hand, the police have been able to describe one of the suspects who is reported to be between 23 and 26 years old. The suspect is off 5 feet, 5 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall and has a dark complexion.

What next for the two stores?

The businesses are likely to lose customers because for example; Robert Abramovich was planning to upgrade his iPhone 5 to an iPhone 8 and the incidence is likely to derail him back.  Police claim that investigations are underway but even then, the investigators are not linking the two robberies despite the suspicions, which are based on physical proximity.
