MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - One man is being blamed for three separate cell phone store burglaries that happened overnight Monday.
The burglary spree started at 11:15 p.m. at the AT&T store on Hacks Cross Road near Winchester Road. Before 2:00 a.m., the burglar knocked off a total of three stores, stealing thousands of dollars in merchandise and causing thousands more dollars in damage.
The burglar also struck at the AT&T on Union Avenue near East Parkway and the T-Mobile on South Perkins Road near American Way.
In each case, the burglar drove his dark colored four-door car (possibly a Chrysler 200, according to police) into the stores and stole cell phones off display racks.
"Go work. I mean dang you don't have to do all of that," customer Tyrone Jones said. "It's sad to see people doing stuff like that. Definitely doesn't make the city look good."
